An Armadillo in Paris: 01/19/15
An Armadillo in Paris by Julie Kraulis is a picture book about an Arlo the armadillo traveling to Paris to see the sites described by his grandfather, Augustin. His ultimate goal is to meet the Iron Lady.
The tour through town takes the Armadillo to a famous cafe, the Louvre and walking along the Seine. Each stop along the way teaches Arlo one more thing about the Iron Lady. For instance, she changes her colors every seven seven years.
Maybe it's because of where I live. Or maybe it's because I've watched A Monster in Paris a dozen times recent months, but I got the clues straight away and the clue about changing colors every seven years was the clincher.
If want to meet the Iron Lady too, follow along with Arlo as he figures out his grandfather's clues.
