The Eiffel Tower is bored todayWouldn't it be nice to fly away? Paris is full of things to do -The Tower would like to see them tooThe Tower takes off for the dayTo watch the city work and play . . .
The Eiffel Tower is bored so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! Sailing through the night air, it glides over the Seine; a short hop away, it finds the Opera. It weaves through crowds on the streets and in the department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame. This beautifully crafted book, brought to intricate, magical life by He´le`ne Druvert's ornate lasercuts, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris and its monuments for young children.
