Editorial Reviews

Having previously taken readers on sojourns through New York City and London, Rubbino follows a girl and her grandfather through the streets of Paris in this elegant companion book. ... Brief informational captions about Parisian landmarks, cuisine, and language are tucked throughout the mixed-media illustrations, whose muted palette and looseness of line are appropriately chic. Rubbino saves Paris’s most famous landmark for last, giving the Eiffel Tower its due in a vertical gatefold that showcases the gleaming structure against a starry night sky.
—Publishers Weekly

The consciously retro illustrations in soft, muted colors are lively and expressive, and there’s a nice balance between detailed images and simple silhouettes. ... Sparkling lights and lovely sights fill this whirlwind tour of Paris
—Kirkus Reviews

Mixed-media illustrations capture the feel of the city while retaining Rubbino’s breezy and highly appealing style. Pure pleasure for armchair travelers.
—Booklist

It’s an amiable amble, the child’s travelogue nicely extended with extra facts in discreetly tiny type... Still, it’s the evocative art that stars here. Gentle tones of stone and overcast sky are enlivened with verdant greens and a pâtisserie’s inviting raspberry-reds. Laying on areas of flat color, Rubbino punctuates them adroitly with minimal, vital lines. ... A delightful introduction to the City of Light, with extra appeal for those who already know it.
—The Horn Book

A charming book that can be enjoyed on multiple levels. The story itself can be used as a group read-aloud, with its large, colorful illustrations and blocks of text; it can also be used alone, poring over the bits of information ranging from history to handy words in French scattered across the pages. The changes in lighting are particularly lovely, from a sunny morning to dusky evening.
—Library Media Connection

Rubbino creates his rich, lively illustrations through a mix of traditional media and digital collage. It's just the right feel for a book about such a stylish city.
—The Sunday Plain Dealer
