Spotted at the Supermarket

Spotted and purchased!


I couldn't resist this darling book by Pierre Probst called Caroline visite Paris. It is number 6 in a series of Caroline books. Each book chronicles an adventure undertaken by Caroline and her troop of friends - Pouf a white kitty (with a bow tie. Come on, who can resist an animal in a bow tie?) Pitou a leopard, Youpi a Cocker Spaniel, and Boum a teddy bear. The book was originally published in 1984 and republished this year.




The illustrations are terribly charming, with a definite vintage vibe. I loved following their escapades through Paris -in the Louvre (trying to see the Mona Lisa), hanging with the gargoyles at Notre Dame and visiting the Eiffel Tower. Think this was 5,00 euros well spent!

Now, I'd like to get my hands on this one.

I have a Caroline and love such rich and beautiful books. From looking online it appears though that the English versions are collectors items and quite expensive.

Absolutely! ONly 5 Euros? Is it paperback? Books here cost a small fortune!

I agree with you on the illustrations. Who would need words when the pictures have so much to talk about. What a good find!

Dana - I know?? 5,00 is a great deal. I looked a few days ago and saw that they were all gone. I purchased in a hypermarket, not a book store, perhaps that is why is was so affordable (NOT at all typical of Luxembourg prices for anything) Here is the link to the tute for making your blog images bigger:

I figured out a method that works better for me, but it involves flickr. Let me know if you want directions.
