Bookstores to frequent and titles worth reading

A Lion in Paris - Children's Book Review star
The illustrations, a beautiful combination of drawing and collage, are what make Un Lion à Paris one of my favorite children's books. Take a look inside...

Artcurial – Shopping in Paris star
Artcurial is the kind of bookshop you can loose yourself in for hours paging through glossy art and fashion books. Set on the Champs Elysees in the most imperial of buildings, even walking through the lacy wrought iron gates makes you feel important.

Fitzgeraldien Summers in the South of France star
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel Tender is the Night is inspired by the couple that made summering in Juan les Pins fashionable in the 1920’s. Learn about the Art Deco villa they possessed, their favorite places to sunbathe and the trend of wearing pyjamas to the beach.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret – Book Review star
The novel, historical fiction set in 1930’s Paris, is delivered by 12 year old Hugo who lives within the train station walls and spends his days winding the clocks and pouring through his journal in an attempt to mend a robot that may carry his father’s last words.

This is Paris - Children's Book Review star
Stroll the avenues taking in landmark architecture and pausing to make acquaintances along the way in Sasek's caricature of the city, This is Paris.

Weddings and Courtships France - Book Review star
Those longing to infuse daily life and relationships with romance will find practicable ideas in Lisa Shea’s book “Weddings and Courtships France.” It paints a picture of marriage from courtship, to ceremony, to life en couple.
