I really loved this book, and I hope there is another one coming out because I can't wait to read it. The book kept me in suspense between its pages! I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down! I could relate to the characters, as they were lifelike. This book was a great mystery. It was a little intense in some parts, but other than that, it was awesome! Read the whole review here.
. . . when it comes to this Simone Lafray and the Chocolatiers’ Ball, I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the premise of the book. Consider Spy Kids (the movie) set in France with a petite little unnoticeable girl being the best kid spy. Read the whole review here.
This book is just so cute and is a great mix of genres. The book is a mystery children's book that takes place in France and is all about chocolate. I love it! The book is easy to read and I'd definitely advise this book to kids in my classroom, it's highly suitable for the younger ones. Everyone of age 10 and above could and should enjoy this book! I'm a little shocked that this book only has 4 ratings on Goodreads... Read the whole review here.
"I loved Simone’s character and enjoyed her daily life in Paris, from strolls in the park to helping out in the patisserie, to working undercover in the art galleries. Her attention to detail, the way her eyes expertly sweep a room and mentally take everything in; calculating how many people, who is acting suspiciously and who is genuine, was matched only by the attention to detail in the author’s descriptions. There is a lot that makes Simone unusual and different, including her love of routine and precision, but these were the things I enjoyed most about her. As a children’s novel, her quirky perfection will I’m sure strike a chord with those kids who maybe don’t feel they fit in with the norm." Read the whole review here.
