Read an Excerpt
Emily twirled in the mirror. She loved the new tutu Madame DuBois made for her to wear.
"Oooo la la ! Divine," said Madame DuBois, approvingly."
Emily had come to live with Madame DuBois as a baby, shortly before the two moved to New Orleans from Paris. Madame DuBois loved the little monkey with all her heart. It seemed Emily loved Madame DuBois, too.
Often, Madame DuBois worked into the night stitching pajamas and frilly dresses for Emily. "Oooo la la. Emily will look divine," she said. Then she made a polka-dot bikini for her to brave the summer heat and a shiny red coat with a hood for rainy days.
