11/8/14 ** I wanted to love this book - I really did. I did thoroughly enjoy the illustrations, made more interesting by listening to the illustrator talk about her inspirations and research process.
The illustrations were detailed and helped me enter Paris' world of haute couture.
Unfortunately, Danielle Steel needs to do more work on her picture book style - every word does count in the picture book genre. Also, I wanted some conflict, some passion, I wanted a reason to care for the characters.
