Willems, Mo. (2015). The Story of Diva and Flea. New York: Disney Book Group.

The Story of Diva and Flea is a lovely story about a pampered but brave little dog named Diva who watches the garden of a big fancy apartment building but never leaves, and an adventurous and brave feral cat named Flea who one day saunters by. The two of them become friends and share adventures.

This book is a great way to introduce young readers to French words which are sprinkled throughout. The sentences have a nice rhythm that makes it pleasant to read aloud. The words and sentence structure are a little more difficult than other books of this age range, like The Haunted Library, but this would be a good book to read together with family members who can help pronounce the more difficult words.

The story is interesting and keeps you reading, which is good for young readers with short attention spans. The characters of Diva and Flea remind the reader of Disney's Lady and the Tramp and The Aristocats which also take place in similar locations.

The illustrations are beautiful. Detailed and colorful and whimsical. It feels like a classic children's story but I like that about it. ( )

Cute story about exploring your world. ( )

In this book, two unlikely animals become best friends. The small dog Diva is privileged and has never left home, while the Cat named Flea has traveled all over Paris.
The theme of this book is to not be afraid to try new experiences. This is an important theme for children to read about because sometimes trying new things can be scary. There is a whole world outside and it is important to live it. The illustrations in this book are really cute and engaging.
