My mother sketches me all over Paris, whether of me eating an ice cream cone under the Eiffel Tower, or washing socks in the bidet, or going on the merry-go-round. It is lots of fun being her model! It takes many turns for me on the merry-go-round for her to finish her drawing. I don’t mind a bit! Paris is amazing!
Great for kids who are already reading, definitely between 6 and 8, and maybe younger.
“Captivating! My grandchildren thought they were there with Elizabeth, enjoying her adventures in Paris with her mom. They loved the drawings and can’t wait to see what she does next. They’ll follow her wherever she goes.”
—Jean Hall, Grandmother and poet, London
“An absolutely amazing book. It creates strong images in the reader’s mind, following everything that Elizabeth is doing. The reader is welcomed into Elizabeth’s world, telling us about her favorite things, especially eating ice cream and where she likes to go. My favorite part is when Elizabeth is describing the fireworks and I can almost see them shooting up in the air, making wonderful patterns. I really enjoyed this book and I definitely think that Elizabeth’s adventures will find a permanent place on my bookshelf.”
