Description

The magic of independence meets the meaning of home in the picture book debut of the #1 bestselling author of Bringing Up Bébé.

When Josephine Harris decides that Paris is where she really belongs, all it takes is a quick call on her magical phone to whisk her away. The city of lights has fancy cafés, baguettes under every arm, the Eiffel Tower, and a fabulous new family who can't wait to show her around.

The city is a feast for the senses, but each new discovery brings a pang of melancholy. There's something missing here. Could it be the person who loves Josephine's best--her own mother?

From #1 bestselling author Pamela Druckerman comes a whimsically commercial picture that little travellers and little homebodies will love!
