Minnie Mouse is invited to Paris for Fashion Week where she will show her beautiful bows. She and her friends work hard to create a selection of bows to bring along. But when they arrive in Paris, Minnie’s suitcase is swapped with that of Penguini the Magnificent, and Minnie ends up with a case full of bunnies hopping out of his magic hat, instead of the bows.
In Minnie in Paris by Sheila Sweeny Higginson, Minnie heads out into Paris to collect the missing bunnies, while her friends buy new supplies for new bows. As they make their way through Paris trying to round up the bunnies and the materials, all of the big landmarks of the city are shown in both illustrations and words. The pictures are big and full of vibrant colors and lots of little details to look at.
Although there are only a few sentences on each of the 40 pages, there are some bigger words and some French words as well, so it’s really more of a read-aloud for younger kids. It's a bit of a counting book, too, as they collect one bunny, then two, then three, and on up to ten.
This is a beautiful picture book that will definitely appeal to Disney fans, and especially Minnie fans! And it includes a code to access the Minnie in Paris ebook, as well.
