Emily Goes Wildby Betty Lou Phillips; Illustrated by Sharon Watts
If you'd like a "tail" with a little French twist, then you'll absolutely fall in love with Madame DuBois and her pet monkey, Emily. Their lives in New Orleans are enriched with French American style – eating beignets at the outdoor market, dressing in stylish designer clothes, and and sleeping in their frilly French-style bedrooms. Emily loves playing with makeup, swinging from chandeliers, and painting pictures on walls, but hiding is her favorite thing to do. Bookshelves, tall plants, and the kitchen wastebasket – after she has dumped out the trash – are a few of her favorite spots. Of course, Madame DuBois can always find Emily; all she has to do is look for the dreadful mess Emily leaves behind. Madame DuBois spends hours every day cleaning up after her pet until one day things drastically change and Emily goes wild! Read about each difficult and heartbreaking decision Madame DuBois must make. The heartwarming results makes you smile.
