Description

At last, Maddie will be free! As a reward for getting an A in French class, Maddie's mom and dad are sending her to Paris to visit with her grandparents.

She has a great time touring the city--the parks, fountains, churches, dinosaurs, even--until meets her young cousin Pierre. Pierre is always bored and always whining, but he introduces Maddie to Abdoul, a handsome African boy who sells mechanical birds in the park.

Maddie likes Abdoul a lot, but when he mysteriously disappears her stay in Paris becomes a lot colder and sadder. She decides she has to find him before she leaves.

Maddie Goes to Paris is the story how one girl's travels open up whole new worlds of experience.
