The adventures of Miss Petitfour by Anne Michaels

This book is gorgeousness personified. As tasty and delicious as the petit fours alluded to in the title. I want this book, I covet it. Are you listening Santa?

We’ve classified it under children’s books yet it has something to offer up to so many different people. If you have a penchant for whimsy, stylish writing and  an eye for the unusual, you will love this book.

Miss Petit four is a stylish being with her sixteen cats enjoying all sorts of adventures. She is  somehow a blend of Audrey Hepburn and Mary Poppins, with the flying and all.

I love Miss Petit four, I think I want to be her, 16 cats? We have a house limit of two. This is Anne Michaels’ first book for children and what an outstanding result. Her body of work has established her as a writer of pedigree in both adult fiction, and poetry.

I can imagine this book would be a great fit as a gift for a hard to buy for adult or perhaps a writer regardless of their audience. And of course, children will adore this book, thereby securing your position as best gift giver 2015.

Sue obeys her cats, and lives to please them. Sometimes she is allowed some free time to read, so long as she answers the service bell when it rings.
