The Story

Once upon a time… a French little girl, 7 years old, is living in US with her 2 mothers. One is journalist and loves to travel all over the world. The other one is a judge and works all the time.
​That little girl “Cannelle la demoiselle” (Cinnamon the lady) will visit a new country once a year with her biological mother and she will meet “Bonbon” (Candy) in her first country: France.
​The first book will take place in Paris, France where “Cannelle” is born. It will be in 3 languages: French, English and Spanish.
​Each book will have a dominant color, related to the Feng-shui concept, Waldorf philosophy’s inspiration, and Tricia Guild fairy colors. The first one will be a mix of  blue, bamboo, lavender and indigo.
Essentials values, French proverbs, anatomy, a map of the world and much more will be share with the young readers.The E-Book will come first and the paper- version will arrive soon after.Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm to follow the wonderful Cannelle’s adventures with Bonbon, le chaton!
