Book Review: The Story of Diva and Flea by Mo Willemstad + Tony DiTerlizzi

Story of Diva and Flea coverThe Story of Diva and Flea

Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi

Ages: 4-8 (or older or younger)

Review: Whimsical and adorable. A mutually beneficial friendship between a dog and a cat encourages them to explore the comforts of home and the excitement of Parisien streets!

Diva lives in a grande building in Paris, watching and guarding and yelping about… FEET! (She had a “very big job for a very small dog.”)

Flea lives on the streets of Paris, “wander[ing] the streets and bridges and alleys of the city,” running way from…BROOMS! (Brooms tend to chase away Flea from food.)

When these unlikely friends meet, they help each other discover new worlds: Diva becomes a great flâneur like Flea, even seeing “the great tower that can cut a cloud in half;” while Flea discovers the wonders of having a home address where the broom is harmless.

An early chapter book, or a longer picture book to read with someone who isn’t too squirmy, this is a sweet tale of friendship and supporting each other through new explorations from two award-winning author/illustrators.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
