"Kids may well demand to be taken to the nearest passport office after finishing this light-as-a-soufflé salute to the City of Lights. On vacation with her parents and little brother, a girl embraces her role as a tourist, savoring all the places where one can say 'Bonjour.' The days are sunny, the flowers are in brilliant bloom, and every Parisian is smiling. Fantastique!" --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[A] vivacious, vicarious romp." -The New York Post
