Minette, D-D and Mister V by Kristine Greenaway
Minette needs help! She has to tidy up her piles of bright ideas before her mother’s party begins and she doesn’t know where to start. Luckily for her Diderot and Voltaire, the two smartest men in the world, arrive in time to lend a hand! Or is it such luck? At first they only add to the chaos! But in the end Minette learns to put things in their place thanks to Voltaire’s big brain, Diderot’s Dictionary of Very Important Ideas and some energetic singing and dancing.
A fun and entertaining way for young children (ages 5+) to meet three of the brightest minds of all time: Voltaire (“Mister V”), Denis Diderot (“D-D”), and Germaine (“Minette”) de Staël.
