Synopsis

Paris Up, Up and Away by Helene Druvert

The Eiffel Tower is bored...so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! Sailing through the night air, it glides over the Seine; a short hop away, it's Opera. It weaves through the crowd and department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame. This beautifully crafted book, full of meticulous lasercuts, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris for young children.

Reviews

Written in rhyming couplets, the real star of the show here is the art, delicate and ornate paper cuts. Alternating pages serve as backdrops for the cut papers in front of them, all laid out on a stark black-and-white palette (with a bit of greyish-blue). The lasercuts are intricate, even including an Eiffel Tower-shaped hole on the book's cover. Older readers, especially adults (and definitely Francophiles), will appreciate such a lavishly illustrated book. It could serve as a very basic introduction to Paris and its monuments, especially for fans of papercutting.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
