With Christmas right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about gift ideas and keeping those traditions and memories alive. One tradition that I remember growing up that I have kept going with my own children, is gifting a new book! The gift of reading gives the child so much more than "just a book!" It's a gift of adventure, imagination and learning!
I was recently given the opportunity to review and read Holiday Heist and I will say that it is darling! Claris is simply adorable and the illustrations are bright, colorful and very detailed! Super cute, super fun, super chic! Any little girl on your holiday gift list would adore this book!
A sweet little mouse takes on a cheeky cat burglar with holiday cheer! Can Claris and Monsieur save the day – the New York way?
The Claris series, with more than a million books in print, follows an adorable mouse who moves to Paris to follow her fashion dreams, for fans of Eloise and Olivia. Destined to delight fashion-obsessed readers of all ages!
Fashionable illustrations will draw young readers into Claris’ glamorous life again and again, while budding designers delight in the characters’ detailed outfits. Rhyming text makes this story of friendship and following your dreams a fun read-aloud for both kids and parents. Claris is more than a story – it’s a whole new world for children to explore as they follow the fashionista mouse on each new adventure, from her move to Paris in The Chicest Mouse in Paris and the runways of Fashion Week in Fashion Show Fiasco, to the beaches of the French Riviera in Bonjour Riviera and now a winter romp through New York City in Holiday Heist.
