Written by Mo Willems
Illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi
Age Level: 6 - 8
Grade Level: 1 – 3
Say hello to Diva, the dog who’s afraid to leave her home in Paris. Then shout bon jour to Flea, the homeless alley cat who must flaneur/wander the streets. What happens when they meet – Diva and Flea become friends who explore Paris together, but have a place to return to when the fun is all done.
Where did Mo get this story idea – from a trip to Paris! Before he could start his own adventures, he found a guard dog, a cat explorer, and the seed to this story.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
