Part story, part grand tour, Monica Wellington’s tale of a Parisian street-cart vendor will charm and inform. Suzette, the crêpe maker, sells her delicacies in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. As she goes from place to place, readers are treated to a variety of Parisian scenes and a series of customers inspired by figures in famous French paintings. Wellington’s mixed- media collages, combining photographs with her signature bright and simple shapes, are dazzling. A crêpe recipe is included.
As delicious as Suzette’s crêpes, this book will captivate children—and their parents— who will want to make the trip to Paris themselves.
