Summary
Diva, a small yet brave dog, and Flea, a curious streetwise cat, develop an unexpected friendship in this unforgettable tale of discovery.

For as long as she could remember, Diva lived at 11 avenue Le Play in Paris, France. For as long as he could remember, Flea also lived in Paris, France-but at no fixed address. When Flea fl neurs past Diva's courtyard one day, their lives are forever changed. Together, Diva and Flea explore and share their very different worlds, as only true friends can do.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Diva is a tiny white dog who lives in a grand, old apartment building in Paris, France. As the pet of the building's gardienne, she patrols the courtyard, making sure that all is well. Flea, on the other hand, is a large cat who roams Paris' streets. He is a great flâneur someone (or somecat) who . . . has seen everything, but still looks for more, because there is always something more to discover. One day Flea's flâneur-ing takes him past Diva's courtyard, and the two strike up a friendship. Diva, who is skittish and has never traveled, loves hearing of Flea's adventures, particularly the one about the tower so tall and so pointy that it could cut a cloud in half. Eventually, Flea suggests that Diva go wandering with him, and after some gentle encouragement, Diva takes her first brave steps beyond the courtyard. In return, Diva takes Flea inside her apartment, introducing him to a friendly broom that won't swat cats and the miraculous occurrence known as breakfast. Willems has written a story with winning characters and bursting with tender charm, which is further amplified by DiTerlizzi's expressive, vintage-style illustrations. Humor and sincerity walk paw in paw through this simple chapter book, inspiring exploration, bravery, and making friends. Be warned: excessive smiling may occur while reading. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Willems and DiTerlizzi are a children's book dream team. Stock up!--Smith, Julia Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Inspired by a real-life dog and cat Willems met during a stay in Paris, this tender friendship story traces the developing rapport between Diva, a small dog who takes seriously the job of guarding her home on 11 avenue le Play, and a roving black cat named Flea. Flea considers himself a flaneur, one who "has seen everything, but still looks for more, because there is always more to discover," as Willems explains. He sets the story over several acts, complete with two intermissions ("le premier entracte" and "le deuxième entracte"), as Diva cautiously ventures out to see the wonders beyond her courtyard and Flea learns that a home can be a lovely thing (and that not all brooms are made for swatting at stray cats). Dabbed with greens and reds, DiTerlizzi's elegant images of Parisian landmarks, handsome buildings, and the feisty interactions between Diva and Flea make the story feel instantly fit for translation to the big screen, and may have some adult readers checking airfares. Ages 6-8. Author's agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt Agency. Illustrator's agency: Gotham Group. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
