Overview

Little Cheese is a story about a yellow brie from France that brought sunshine to Chicago. His parents Claire-Marie and Hugo were cheesemakers. They worried that Little Cheese could never become a Big Cheese in France because the French prefer creamy white brie. So they sent Little Cheese on a special mission to their friends, Celia and Harry, to bring sunshine to gray Chicago.

In Chicago, Little Cheese uses courage and grit to overcome loneliness and loss with help from Chloe, a calico cat. Chloe teaches Little Cheese that a good story takes you to a place-your imagination-where we see new worlds in our mind. Then, on the hottest day of the summer, Little Cheese's good luck would change his life forever. This is the "ugly duckling story" for our multicultural age.
