Written like a journal and featuring doodles, cartoons, whimsical notes and memorabilia like postcards and ticket stubs, MIRA’S DIARY: LOST IN PARIS takes readers on a fast-paced adventure around the globe to view the Wonders of the World through the eyes of a 13-year-old girl.
Mira, her older brother Malcolm, and her photographer father are traveling the world to document the Modern Wonders — and search for Mira’s missing mother. The only clue they have is a postcard from Paris. When Mira touches a gargoyle at Notre Dame, she is whirled into the past where she meets historical figures like the painter Degas and catches a brief, shocking glimpse of her mother. Mira begins to suspect that her Mom didn’t run out on them, but has become a prisoner of the past. Can one family on an incredible worldwide adventure stop a plot in time?
Accompanied by fun and engaging illustrations, MIRA’S DIARY is a fresh take on weaving together real history and art with action, adventure, time-travel and family drama in an exciting new series.
