‘Diva and Flea‘ is reminiscent of ‘The Lady and the Tramp’. Diva, a little dog in a safe, small setting, full of her responsibility, meets wild, huge Flea, an alleycat with attitude and no fixed abode. Their friendship enables Diva to realise, ‘I am brave’ when she steps outside the constraints of 11 avenue Le Play to experience the might of Paris. In turn, Flea discovers ‘breck- fast’ and friendly brooms. While Diva is afraid of the ‘feet outside’, Flea is fearful of the ‘feet inside.’
This beautiful book is an elegy to friendship, a recognition of the importance of being able to ‘flâneur in style, while being a love story to Paris. We recommend ‘Diva and Flea‘ to all readers young and old, aged from 6 or 7 years of age.
