Bonjour! We’ve hopped across the channel to France in our World Dolls Series tour.
Illustrations for this edition are by Janet Meeson from the Birmingham School of Design.
Are guides for this trip are Marie & Pierre – resplendent in their traditional costumes.
A bit of gentle sun on our faces – we’re all relaxed and mellow – so the large shillelagh stick to keep order on the coach that Patrick had in Ireland has been dispensed with!
Marie & Pierre have joined us from their toy shop window in Paris.
All the classic Parisienne sights. Wide, tree-lined avenues…
…colourful cafés, classic architecture, beautiful bridges, the River Seine….
…and of course – the Eiffel Tower.
We then head into the idyllic countryside to take a look at the vineyards & orchards.
Then onto the coast for a spot of sunbathing – where we can all get very brown!
And finally we take in a festival – the Blessing of the Boats.
We just love the illustration below.
Join us next time when we’re in Germany.
