The Eiffel Tower is bored ... so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! Sailing through the night air, it glides over the Seine; a short hop away, it's Opera. It weaves through the crowd and department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame. This beautifully crafted book, full of meticulous lasercuts, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris for young children.

Review quote

'It is perfect to practice reading on, with a poetic text and enough illustrations to help out if there is any insecurity about a word' - Babyccino Kids 'From the leaves caressed by the breeze to the merry-go round horses and the theater masks laughing on the cupolas of the Opera Garnier, this is a work of art for the youngat heart' - Air France 'Druvert uses lasercut techniques to create wonderful Parisian tableaux which are brimful of intricate details. The limited palette of black, white and blue/grey heightens the ornate papercuts and the result is quite striking' - Library Mice 'A beautiful and captivating book for children aged four and up, the rhyming story sees the Eiffel Tower take a voyage around the City of Light, visiting fellow landmarks en route - and it's all illustrated in amazing laser-cut pop-up designs' - Absolutely West London 'Laser-cut pages add interesting detail to beautiful illustrations' - On Printed Paper 'A must read' - Smallish 'A magically immersive read' - Little London 'Superb, both technically and aesthetically' - Financial Times (Books of the Year) 'Enchanting ... Druvert uses intricate laser-cut silhouettes to superb effect' - Financial Times
