Janie Dempsey Wattsabout this book: Last May when I was planning an anniversary trip to Paris with my husband, my grandson, then three, asked me what was Paris? I happened to have a snow globe of the Eiffel Tower on my desk from a previous trip there, so I pulled it down and told him about the Eiffel Tower. He begged to go, but since he was too small, I decided to "take him there" by writing this story. A picture book was born!
Here's what some readers are saying:
• "The artwork is colorful, professional, and complements the story very well. I'm so impressed with this book. In a word, it is FABULEUX!"
• "Watts delivers a number of poignant moments in the story, and she offers a fun way of merging the educational with the entertaining. I recommend this book for any family with young children planning a trip to Paris, or anyone who wants to know more about the city."
• "Watts creates a comforting bond between a grandfather and his grandson rarely seen in children's books. It is charming to watch Ricky model Pap Pap's positive messages and learn about the world with a curious mind, eager for adventure. It will leave any adult or child wishing he or she lived in such loving, supportive and ever expanding horizons."
