Synopsis

The Goldfish in the Chandelier by Casie Kesterson

This is a charming tale about the creation of a very unusual chandelier...Here is a different kind of adventure story; The Goldfish in the Chandelier takes place just outside of Paris in the early 1800s. Uncle Henri is stuck. He has been commissioned to design a chandelier for a great house in Paris, but can't think what to do. To the rescue comes Louis Alexandre, his young nephew, with some dazzling ideas inspired by Alexander the Great and the first hot-air balloon flights over Paris. Together, they combine their imagination to create something that never existed before - something completely new and unexpected!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
