PARIS, UP, UP AND AWAY
There is something so special in receiving a book that will be published in a few weeks … it is such a privilege!
And today I am thrilled to share with you this amazing gift:
Paris, Up, Up, and Away is a beautifully crafted tribute to Paris.
This hardcover book, illustrated by Hélène Druvert and edited by Thames & Hudson, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris for young children (suitable for ages 4+).
Paris is brought to magical life by illustrator, paper and textile designer Hélène Druvert‘s ornate and intricate laser cuts and meticulous drawings.
“The Eiffel Tower is bored today,
Wouldn’t it be nice to fly away?
Paris is full of things to do,
The Tower would like to see them too…”
“The Eiffel Tower is bored” … so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! Sailing through the night air, the Eiffel Tower glides over the Seine, watches ballerinas at the Opera, weaves through the crowds of people and over the department stores, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame.
You can follow with your kids the rest of the Tower’s journey and discover the city’s glorious monuments that are brought to life in great detail.
It is a stunning view of Paris like you’ve never seen before!
” Paris, Up, Up and Away” is a true poetic tribute to the City of Light and a charming story that will be adored by kids and adults alike.
I could not think of a better gift for those kids who have recently traveled to Paris, families planning their next trip to this city, and for all of us who enjoy traveling with our imagination.
