I’m thrilled to share our five reader reviews for our February reading club pick, Julie Kraulis’ An Armadillo in Paris.
An Armadillo in Paris
Written and illustrated by Julie Kraulis
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 5-9
“…Julie Kraulis’s sophisticated oil-and-graphite artwork is chic, with elegant lines and a muted palette…Informative and charming, An Armadillo in Paris is sure to please armchair travelers who will eagerly await more of Arlo’s globe-trotting adventures.” – Quill & Quire
- Danielle at This Picture Book Life loves the “unexpected choice of an armadillo as [a] main character” and comments on Arlo’s “sweet, shiny eyes.” She’s also hosting a giveaway!
- Tanya at Pass the Damn Ham, Please thinks this is a book “meant to be pored over again and again.”
- Jules at curtains for the windows says that “this story is for anyone who longs for adventure and finds wonder in everything.”
- Emilie at Not So Impossible Things suggests that “reading the book felt like a mini-adventure prelude to the real thing.”
- Jo Ann at The Book Faerie calls it a “charming tale” and a “grand tour.”
