From the Author
I've been a lifelong Julia fan, and was thrilled to meet her when I created the flower arrangements for her 80th birthday party in NYC. Later I became an award-winning children's book author, and for years I wanted to write a book about her. Then I found out she was a cat lover who got her first cat, Minette, when she and her husband lived in Paris. Julia fed Minette leftovers (lucky cat!), and in return Minette brought Julia...fresh-caught mice! Julia wrote about Minette in her letters and memoirs, and now kids can get to know Julia through this funny and very tasty story. Amy Bates' exquisite illustrations perfectly capture both Minette's antics and the warmth and charm of Julia Child and the City of Light. Great for kids, foodies, Francophiles, Julia Child fans and cat lovers, too.
