Summary
Joshua Pearl comes from a world that we no longer believe in -- a world of fairy tale. He knows that his great love waits for him there, but he is stuck in an unfamiliar time and place -- an old-world marshmallow shop in Paris on the eve of World War II. As his memories begin to fade, Joshua seeks out strange objects: tiny fragments of tales that have already been told, trinkets that might possibly help him prove his own story before his love is lost forever. Sarah Ardizzone and Sam Gordon translate the original French into a work both luminous and layered, enabling Timothée de Fombelle's modern fairy tale to thrum with magic. Brimming with romance and history, mystery and adventure, this ode to the power of memory, storytelling, and love will ensnare any reader's imagination and every reader's heart. -- amazon.com
