"Deftly written and charmingly illustrated by Denise Lawson, "Meet Monique" takes children ages 5-8 on a picture book journey as a young girl named Monique looks at an atlas and imagines herself in different places around the world. From the highlands of Scotland to the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, in her imagination Monique plays the bagpipes on a hill full of thistle and plays steel drums barefoot in the sand. On her adventures, she encounters koalas, zebras, and giant pandas and even scales the Eiffel Tower! Thoroughly 'kid friendly' and wonderfully entertaining, "Meet Monique" is especially recommended and unreservedly endorsed for family, elementary school, and community library picture book collections"
