    Delightful and charming5

    Possum This is a small attractive book delightfully illustrated with colour photographs and written with particularly attractive fonts. It's almost a coffee table book except for it's size.

    The book is set out well and details several attractive locations in each of 20 Arrondissements of Paris which are not necessarily tourist attractions. Instead they are less visited and much quieter and often more attractive. You will not find tourist busses outside them and this adds to the charm of each of the places.

    The addresses and nearest metros are clearly stated but maps are not provided. When visiting you should take a map with you or research the exact locations on an internet map site before your set out.

    This book would be ideal to take on an extended stay in Paris and details no less than 60 pretty or interesting locations not usually marked on the tourist maps. by Possum
