Maya and Mitaine:From Saint John to Paris

  Author:   Joanie Duguay    
  Publisher:  Chocolate River Publishing

Maya is off to Paris with her mother to attend a haute couture fashion show of an up and coming Acadian designer Elise Bourque. But her elderly cat, Mitain, is not well and Maya is worried that she won’t be there when she gets back. She’s also worried about missing her father’s trip to port because he is working on the Queen Mary II. The Paris fashion scene is bound to delight young readers and the loss of a beloved pet will tug at their heartstrings. Elise Bourque is a real person and the author included her in the story to encourage young people to follow their dreams. Bourque is from Petit-Rocher, NB and now lives in Ontario. Her collection was showcased at the fashion week in Ottawa and the Mercedes-Benz Start Up of the Spring-Summer 2013 season.This early chapter book is beautifully illustrated by Réjean Roy and the end papers resemble a passport to go with the travel theme. It is a translation of the Bouton d’or Acadie title Maya et Mitain : De Saint-Jean à Paris.
