Adèle and her younger brother, Simon, have just arrived in New York City to visit their Aunt Cécile and prepare for a grand train trip around America. "Please try not to lose anything on our trip," Adèle tells her brother with a sigh. But how can Simon remember to keep an eye on his belongings when there are so many wonderful distractions and astounding sights to take in? The endearing team from Adèle & Simon returns in a crosscontinental adventure that reflects the vitality of early twentieth-century America, from the Boston Public Garden to San Francisco's Chinatown. Stunning pen-and-ink-andwatercolor illustrations are filled with innumerable hidden treasures, and endpapers featuring a period map of America extend the fun.

Adèle & Simon in America is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
