The Story of Diva and Flea: 12/29/16
The Story of Diva and Flea by Mo Willems is set in Paris near the Eiffel Tower. Diva's a pampered dog who lives in the yard and first story of an apartment. Flea is a stray cat, a self described flaneur, who happens upon Diva's garden.
Flea shows Diva the joys of flaneuring and Diva shows Flea the joys of living in a garden. Their adventures around the block and in the apartment are beautifully illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi.
It's a short book that's reminiscent of other stories set in Paris: Madeline for the Diva's building, Gay Purr-ee, and Aristocats. There is some language play in both French and English so the book could be fun to read aloud.
