When Josephine Harris decides that Paris is where she truly belongs, all it takes to get her there is a call on her magic phone. She awakens in Paris and is welcomed by a stylish Frenchwoman who can’t wait to take her on a city tour and teach her French. They watch a ballet, eat oysters in a café and go up the Eiffel Tower. But there’s something—or someone—missing. Should Josephine stay in Paris, or go home? Paris by Phone is a whimsical picture book for kids and grown-ups who long to see the world, but love coming home. They’ll learn easy French words and phrases along the way.
