Little Bo in France: 08/03/12
Bonnie Boadicea and her sailor friend, Billy Bates go to France to look for work. Billy wants to find a ship that hiring crew. He's down to his last few pounds and he's heard there might be work here.
While Billy is having adventures in Paris and later in the South of France, Bo is having her own parallel experiences. She has a run in with a dog, meets a long lost sibling, and is befriended by a sea faring ginger tom.
Billy and Bo's adventures through France give children a chance to learn about the geography of the country, it's language as well as life on board.
I've read all three books, but Little Bo in France is definitely my favorite.
