The Sisters Saint-Claire and the Royal Mouse Ball
Published: 2018 by Allen & Unwin
Level: Early Years (R-2)
Another cute tale of the Sisters Saint-Claire who live in a pretty French village with their parents Odette and Pierre. When the whole village is invited by the Queen to the royal mouse ball, the Saint-Claires sadly decline, fearing, despite their unique style, they are not grand enough for the occasion. All is resolved with Saint-Claire ingenuity and the kindness and wisdom of the Queen. The last page of the book provides instructions on how to make finger patterns with some words in French.
