While most definitely envying our colleague Apryl who is currently enjoying herself in Paris, we are comforting ourselves here in the department by accompanying Mr Leon through Barroux’ delightful illustrations of the city, in a story translated by Sarah Ardizzone.
I wonder if Apryl will hail Mr Leon’s taxi when she is over there; she would find a driver full of imagination and joy at his diverse city and its visitors and inhabitants. It would be great to see a ‘Mr Leon’ doing the same round London and other cities.
