Monsieur Lambert arrived today...

and he's here to stay.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you:

Oh how I love this man’s books

At first view, it may seem as though this is a child’s book. It could very well be, but it’s really not. In Monsieur Lambert, Jean-Jacques Sempé captures the French essence ever so charmingly in just 58 illustrated pages. Page after page, secrets and conversations of different frequenters of Restaurant Chez Picard unfold before your eyes. It’s so quaint and lovely I can’t believe I own it. This is going to replace The Audrey Hepburn Treasures as my bedside book.
