Feeling Frenchy

At the Younger Sun, we love lots of books, but considering two of our staff are about to pop off to Paris, France, Europe for a wee holiday, we particularly are loving things of the Parisian persuasion!

Consider these titles if you are in need of some French fodder for the young!

Henri's Walk to Paris Text by Leonore Klein, Illustrated by Saul Bass 
(First published in 1962, this reprint is a new release! YAY!)

Mr Chicken Goes to Paris by Leigh Hobbs
(Probably one of the best books ever written, ever)

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
(A young adult romance novel with a twist of humour and wit!)

By Goscinny & Sempe (A French children's classic chapter book about a French School boy, from the writer of Asterix!)
