This is a travelogue for the 12-year-old girl. The destination is Paris, France, and the venue is the life, environs and art of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet. Linnea, a flower lover, is invited by her neighbor, Mr. Bloom, to travel with him to Paris, which she does. There is much biographical information about Monet, and also about Impressionism itself. Two voices occur on the tape. Christina Moore's Linnea is a clearly enunciated voice, sounding about the right age; her French pronunciation is quite good, too. Another voice, perhaps a teacher or Linnea's mother, fills in some information at the end. This is simple, low-key and engaging. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
