Marielle in Paris
Marielle is a little mouse who lives in Paris and is a dressmaker. Madame de Sooree asks Marielle to design and make nine dresses for her daughter’s fancy birthday party. Marielle goes around Paris to look for new ideas for the dresses. The night before the party, the nine dresses blow out the window and Marielle must go find them with her friend, Pierre the pigeon. Marielle and Pierre fly high above Paris, looking for the dresses. Will they be able to find all of the dresses in time for the party?
I really loved reading Marielle in Paris because it’s about Paris. I would love to go to Paris, and I loved the illustrations, which showed some attractions, like Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, and the Champs-Elysees. My favorite part of the book was seeing the nine dresses and trying to figure where Marielle got the idea for each. In the back of the book, it even tells you on which page you can find the idea for each dress. I liked looking at Marielle’s house and seeing the different things that her furniture was made from, like using a cork for a table. Marielle in Paris was an easy book to read on my own. I would recommend Marielle in Paris to girls who like dresses or kids who want to see Paris.
