Summary, etc. note: Mademoiselle Oiseau’s quirky character continues to delight in the sequel to Andrea de La Barre de Nanteuil and Lovisa Burfitt’s The Story of Mademoiselle Oiseau. This second illustrated story reveals the seemingly ageless Mademoiselle Oiseau’s tumultuous childhood, which she makes peace with thanks to strong sisterly bonds, and her friendship with Isabella, the shy and unremarkable nineyear- old she had helped turn into a confident girl. At the end of the first book, Mademoiselle Oiseau had flown away to Venice to see her sister, the Marquise Luisa. Mademoiselle Oiseau and the Letters from the Past uncovers a long-lost older sister who makes her way back into her younger sisters’ lives with a little bit of meddling from Isabella and Mademoiselle’s great-niece, Isis. An enchanting tale brought to life through magnificent illustrations reminiscent of high-fashion sketches, Mademoiselle Oiseau and the Letters from the Past prolongs the journey into Mademoiselle’s universe full of reverie, mystery, and surprises to the enjoyment of children and adults alike.
