A Great New Book for the Family to Read Together

Rachel bought me a most wonderful book as a Christmas present. If you have enjoyed books like Harry Potter or other family reading, then have I got a recommendation for you. Note, though, that this story is basically a period mystery set in late 19th century Paris. It doesn’t have any supernatural elements to it, except for a sense of wonder and a charming story line.

I’ve never encountered another book like this one. It’s part story, part graphic novel – yet this book manages to use its multitude of beautiful black & white pictures to dramatically and tenderly advance the story.

I’ve been reading it to the girls before bed time and we’ve lingered long over each of the pictures that, in their own unique way, advance and elevate the story telling.

I encourage you to pick up a copy and enjoy it.
