Featuring specially-commissioned illustrations, this first English-language edition of Sun-mi Hwang’s fable beautifully captures the journey of an unforgettable character in world literature.

A delightful compact read, for those wishing to discover the quieter attractions of Paris.

This book is quite a comprehensive volume listing the natural healing properties of each crystal with divine guidance channelled from the Archangels.
