The Story of Diva and Flea
by Mo Willems (Author), Tony DiTerlizzi (Illustrator)
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.

The Story of Diva and Flea by Mo Willems is a wonderfully cute and unforgettable tale of discovery. Diva the dog, a flee the streetwise cat form an unlikely friendship forms. My daughter absolutely loves this book. I love that it's a chapter book and is a great way to introduce children to chapter books because they chapters are fairly short and fun to read. The illustrations throughout the book are adorable and go right along with the story. This is a terrific book and would make a perfect gift for children ready to begin reading chapter books!
