Les Aventures d'Isabelle
by Karen Rowan
Isabelle is a 8½ year-old girl who can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble on a visit to Paris with her mother. She wants to be the president when she grows up. Or a ballerina. Or the president and a ballerina. She’s dramatic. She sings on the subway, eats screams like a baby after eating a cheese that is too strong, and convinces her mom to buy new shoes for a big family. No matter how often her mom asks her to sit down like a normal little girl, she just can’t help getting up to take more pictures of her adventures. When will Isabela ever sit down?
