On a personal note:
Advance review copies of VIVE LA PARIS are now officially all gone, so I cannot honor any further requests. To those who participated, your books are en route, and thank you for your enthusiasm and also your willingness to get the word out about this book, it is very important to me. I wanted to write a book that would introduce children of all colors and creeds to some of the background knowledge of WWII in a way that preserves optimism and hope. You'll let me know if I managed! I am so excited for you to meet Paris, her family of four brothers, her worst enemy Tanaeja, and her unexpected ally, Mrs. Rosen. Of course, our friends Sahara, Darrell and Miss Pointy that some may remember from SAHARA SPECIAL are back as well!
Even if you did not get an advance review copy, you will still have an opportunity to don your rose-colored glasses...it is now available in bookstores! Hooray!!!
Happy fall, everyone!
