Summary

A nineteenth-century American girl journals her trip to Paris where she meets famous painters like Mary Cassat, learns about art, and more. It’s 1893. Charlotte and her family have lived abroad in the famous artist colony in Giverny, France, for a year, when an exciting invitation arrive. The celebrated American Impressionist Mary Cassat is having an exhibition in Paris. And so, Charlotte and her family are off to visit “The City of Light.”  Like a true Parisian, Charlotte dines at a café along the Champs-Elysées, watches a marionette show in the Jardin des Tuileries and explores the Louvre Museum. She visits the Eiffel Tower on her birthday and celebrates Christmas Eve in the shadow of Notre Dame.  Illustrated with stunning museum reproductions and lovely watercolor paintings and collages, the book also includes biographical sketches of the featured painters. Charlotte’s charming scrapbook will leave readers of all ages shouting, “Vive Paris!” Praise for Charlotte in Paris “[A] delightful heroine. . . . [A] charming offering.” —Booklist“The narrative is breathless and chock-full of incidental characters, including every dog Charlotte meets. Sweet’s delicate watercolors of details like “les parapluies” and “la citronade” represent the protagonist’s paintings and fully balance the fine-art reproductions that appear throughout. . . . This enchanting episode in Charlotte’s life introduces Paris, gardening, and an exciting period in the art world.” —School Library Journal

Frank Baum, delights readers of all ages with his imaginative tales of the “real” stories behind the beloved nursery rhymes.
