Books for Little Francophiles

Here are a few books by French authors/illustrators you might enjoy:
Around the World with Mouk by Marc Boutavant (Chronicle Books, 2009)
Originally published in France in 2007 by Albin Michel Jeunesse under the title Le Tour du Monde de Mouk.
Mouk, a cute bear with a big head, is off on a world tour. Join him as he leaves Paris and tours Finland, Japan, the U.S. and the Sahara. This book is filled with busy, vibrant "comic style" illustrations that offer the reader a challenge to search and find great details on each page.

Adventures of a different sort are awaiting Polo and friends in the Polo books by Régis Faller. In the nearly wordless books starring Polo, a smart and imaginative little dog, who leaves his home in a tree on an island and sets off on new, quirky adventures in each book. The artwork is clever and the adventures are exciting. These books inspire your imagination too!
