AdÃ¨le and her younger brother, Simon, have just arrived in New York City to visit their Aunt CÃ©cile and prepare for a grand train trip around America. âPlease try not to lose anything on our trip,â AdÃ¨le tells her brother with a sigh. But how can Simon remember to keep an eye on his belongings when there are so many wonderful distractions and astounding sights to take in? The endearing team from AdÃ¨le & Simon returns in a crosscontinental adventure that reflects the vitality of early twentieth-century America, from the Boston Public Garden to San Francisco's Chinatown. Stunning pen-and-ink-and-watercolor illustrations are filled with innumerable hidden treasures, and endpapers featuring a period map of America extend the fun.
