Monsieur Roscoe in the City

Jim Field


It’s Fry’s birthday and Monsieur Roscoe’s determined to give his goldfish friend a party to celebrate. That means getting the ‘picnic party in the park‘ ready. Therefore, after the birthday cake, it’s time to head out to the shop. However, disaster strikes!
After a visit to the greengrocer’s, Roscoe’s friend, Wilma spies Fry floating away! It means a speedy rescue mission through the crowded city upon Roscoe’s bike. Yet how will they manage should Fry float ‘into the Dinosaur Museum’? After all, it’s a place full of distractions and then… open windows! Then again what will Fry see from her lofty heights? Furthermore, how will she get down to Earth?
Bookwagon delights in Jim Field’s Francophile creation. While there is ample opportunity to enjoy his opportunity to engage with and learn the French language, this is also a fabulous picture book. In fact, we love journeying through Roscoe’s city and its environs, realising the layout and structure, rather like Marvellous Margot and then Roscoe’s life too. However, will Fry be rescued? Then again, what about everyone who’s gathered to watch Fry’s party hat flying journey? It seems there are lots of friends who want to celebrate! Bookwagon loves and recommends this second adventure with our lovely friendly dog. Monsieur Roscoe in the City is a delight!
