Product description

Review

Resistance is futile ... you might as well buy it before someone recommends it for your book group. Its charm will make you say yes. --Guardian
This breathtakingly singular novel...is totally French yet completely universal. --Good Housekeeping

Clever, informative and moving ... this is an admirable novel which deserves as wide a readership here as it had in France.-- The Observer
The novel wins over its fans with a life-affirming message, a generous portion of heart and Barbery's frequently wicked sense of humor. --Time Magazine

A book of great charm and grace.--The Metro
Reveals itself as a version of the Cinderella fairytale. --Financial Times
The book's attractive, Amélie-esque Parisian setting and cast of eccentrics will appeal to many. --Sunday Telegraph
