Grade 2-4-The fictional young American diarist of Charlotte in Giverny (Chronicle, 2000) spends part of 1893 with her artist parents in Paris, visiting the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, and Tuileries gardens, among other sights. Her journal chronicles a friendship with Julie Manet and recalls neighborhood gossips who give personal details about such artists as Cassatt, Degas, Renoir, and Rodin, 14 of whom are profiled at the book's end. The narrative is breathless and chock-full of incidental characters, including every dog Charlotte meets. Sweet's delicate watercolors of details like "les parapluies" and "la citronnade" represent the protagonist's paintings and fully balance the fine-art reproductions that appear throughout. Readers are also treated to the girl's journal collectibles, such as a peacock feather, a recipe for cherry "Clafoutis," and postcards of the fair city. This enchanting episode in Charlotte's life introduces Paris, gardening, and an exciting period in the art world.
