Here's a charmingly illustrated armadillo adventure for young armchair travellers. Arlo, an armadillo from Brazil, 'loves to explore' and is about to embark on a trip to Paris, armed with his grandfather's journal about that famed city.

Young readers will accompany Arlo to the Arc de Triomphe (in its 'whirlpool of cars'); Café Gustave (for a breakfast croissant); the Champs-Elysées (for strolling and window-shopping); a patisserie (for sweets); the Louvre (for its historic art); the Pont Neuf and Seine (for people watching); Left Bank bookstores - and much more.

And he finally does find the Iron Lady - do you know what she is? Read An Armadillo in Paris and you'll learn all about her and the lovely city that houses her.
