First Edition Book Launch Party

Bonjour... Hello... today's tablescape hostessed by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch... with a "CAGE" is the PERFECT setting (image via here)... take a seat...

Champagne will be poured (image via here)...

as I am THRILLED to announce my first self-published book for children... Valentine in a Cage is AVAILABLE for PURCHASE!!!


oui oui oui... it is a story about Valentine's Day... and I realize it is not near Valentine's Day... BUT... truly it is a story about LOVE... and it is a PERFECT story for ANY DAY...

Valentine in a Cage was a bedtime story for Fifi's son loosely based on true events. It was created in English and translated into French later for a classroom cultural day event.  Fifi and another French speaking mother read the book to the classroom anddddd Fifi brought berets for the children to try on too! The children loved the story... so Fifi decided to publish it to share with others... soooo here it is for YOU too!!!


The 26-page book also features 14 original illustrations by Fifi... on SALE in My Etsy Shop at an introductory rate of $10.00 (regularly 12.95)... the first edition will be "personally" autographed... be sure to write the name of the person you wish Fifi to address... I hope you ENJOY the book!!!


P.S... STAY TUNED... Fifi is in the process of illustrating two more books for children... and one for an older crowd... something about someone with initials M.A. and it may have something to do with a little city called Par-ee!!!
