Diva and Flea live in Paris. Diva mostly lives inside and Flea mostly lives outside. Flea is a flaneur. He walks past Diva’s house every day and Diva usually yelps and runs away. One day she stands up for herself, starting a great friendship where Flea teaches Diva about the beauties of their city and Diva teaches Flea about the pleasures of human company. A fun chapter book, for readers who have graduated from Mo Willems’s picture books and early readers, and are looking for a book to read on their own.— From Holiday Picks 2015
Diva, a small yet brave dog, and Flea, a curious streetwise cat, develop an unexpected friendship in this unforgettable tale of discovery.
For as long as she could remember, Diva lived at 11 avenue Le Play in Paris, France. For as long as he could remember, Flea also lived in Paris, France-but at no fixed address. When Flea fl neurs past Diva's courtyard one day, their lives are forever changed. Together, Diva and Flea explore and share their very different worlds, as only true friends can do.
