Paris Up, Up and Away

This charming book follows the Eiffel Tower as it cuts loose and soars over the City of Light. Hélène Druvert’s intricate lasercuts and delicate illustrations show Paris and its monuments at their very best, and offer a wonderfully imaginative introduction to the city for young children.
For ages 5+

    The Eiffel Tower is bored today
    Wouldn’t it be nice to fly away?
    Paris is full of things to do –
    The Tower would like to see them too.
    The Tower takes off for the day
    To watch the city work and play …

Hélène Druvert is an illustrator, paper and textile designer.
