Paris: Up, Up and Away

paris up up away coverParis: Up, Up and Away tells the story of the flight of the Eiffel Tower as it tours the City of Light. While the story is written at a level suitable for first readers, adults will adore the artwork: it has lovely black and white illustrations and, even better, gorgeous lasercuts of intricate scenes and buildings. The confetti-like pages lift to change the view on either side. Truly, a pleasure to read.
