Overview

The Eiffel Tower is bored today
Wouldn’t it be nice to fly away?
Paris is full of things to do –
The Tower would like to see them too.
The Tower takes off for the day
To 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’s Opera. It weaves through the crowd and department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame.

This beautifully crafted book, full of meticulous lasercuts, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris for young children.
