At only a year old, Sophie was rescued from a shipwreck by an eccentric bachelor named Charles who raised her to draw on the walls, use books as plates, and wear bright red trousers when all the other Victorian girls around her wear skirts. Never ignore the possible, says Charles, and when she turns twelve, Sophie starts to think it might just be possible her mother survived the shipwreck. So with a welfare agency intent on separating them on their tail, Sophie and Charles flee to Paris to begin searching for her mother with the only clue they have--the address on the inside of the cello case Sophie washed ashore in. Whimsical, magical, and wildly charming, this book will make you pine to scramble across Parisian rooftops.
