Fashion illustrator, Megan Hess, has written a new tale for her chic mouse, Claris, for the holidays! Children can join Claris as she takes on a cheeky cat burglar and saves the day in Claris: The Chicest Mouse in Paris Holiday Heist.

The newest book in the Claris series, this title joins the others which have now been printed a million times. This chic little mouse has gone to Paris to follow her passion for fashion in previous stories, but this one happens in New York City.

Her glamorous life is splashed over the pages of the book in stylish drawings and elegant colors to capture children’s imagination about following their passions, traveling, and making friends. Written for 3 to 8-year-olds, though parents will enjoy it as well, the story is told in rhyming text which is fun to read aloud, but equally delightful for readers to enjoy on their own.

The reason Claris’ world seems so real is that the author Megan Hess works for luxury brands and prestigious fashion designers like Dior, Cartier, Chanel, Tiffany & Co., and Montblanc.  In fact, she’s Bloomingdales New York’s official illustrator, and has also completed cover art for Candace Bushnell’s Sex and the City books. She’s also collaborated on the “Blo” Blow Dry Bar campaign with Gwyneth Paltrow and completed a private commission for Michelle Obama.

Claris: The Chicest Mouse in Paris is her first children’s book series and we’re thrilled that she’s adding to the series with this holiday storybook.
