KIRKUS REVIEW

At number seven, Rue Petite, Jean-Pierre and Isabelle work as cook and housekeeper to rich but grumpy antique dealer Monsieur Pompeaux. Their dream is to have a restaurant of their own, and they finally achieve it at that very address, when Isabelle's scrupulous polishing of the antiques reveals them all to be fakes and leads to Pompeaux's arrest as a forger. Shire's illustrations, about one grade up from the ordinaire story, are sprinkled with French labels, Parisian sights, and other gal touches which give the whole at least a semblance of insouciance.
