Client Reviews

Magical Book!
Our Young Lady of Paris is an enthralling book that held me spellbound through Agnes’s day-long journey in Paris. Rockstar clothes, metaphysical questings, and vivid collages of Paris as seen through the eyes of a cool teenage philosophe, it will fascinate teenagers and indeed adults, introducing Anglophones to Paris and Francophones to English. Really loved this!

Coco’s “Hansel and Gretel” stole my heart from the first page. The opening line “…where children forgot their shoes at each other’s homes” transported me back to childhood, where I remained for the rest of the story. It’s a rarity to find children’s books to delight both the reader and the kids, and this one is an absolute treasure. The whimsy of the words and images feels effortless, like an easy outpouring from Coco’s magical soul. My kids and I will enjoy reading it for years to come!

Coco Mary’s latest literary effort takes whimsy and fantasy to the max in her third children’s book – Hansel and Gretel, a foodie tale. It is awash in colorful collages, originals designed by the author, that will entertain children with an abundance of visual food for thought and discovery. There is so much detail in the pictures that child and parent would talk as much about the visual story as they would be reading and learning the words. Coco introduces a foreign language in each book, and in this case, German, seeing as the story of Hansel and Gretel is of German origin. The back cover, meant to spark interest, says, “They loved the footpath behind their house. It led to a surprising place”. And so it will for years to come.

Mademoiselle Puss in Provence, the classic tale with Madame Coco’s luscious French twist, is the read-together or enjoy-alone picture book that every generation will want to open again and again, always discovering something new, and keep on the shelf for generations to come. Between its covers, imagery and icons of life in southern France are captured in rich, whimsical visual layers. Through love of culture, lyrical storytelling, a few subtle and sophisticated French lessons, 9 life lessons and a recipe for Galette des Rois, Mademoiselle Puss elevates the reader to the Marvelous. Merci, Madame!
Diana Mathur, mother, author.

My children and I absolutely loved this beautiful book! You just wish you could step through the pages and into the world Madame Coco so richly imagines, evoking an enchanting atmosphere and inspiring children and adults alike to never give up on their dreams and passions. Beautifully written and illustrated, it is a must-read for anyone who loves France, anyone who needs some beautiful inspiration and anyone who is a child or has a child deep inside:)!
Highly recommended!
Eldrid O’Driscoll, mother, doula and opera singer.

This whimsical and imaginative fairytale takes the reader– children and parents alike– into a festive and delicious world where they are introduced to French language, art, and culture, with insightful life lessons from Mademoiselle Puss to top it all off! Anyone looking to plunge into a delightful, kaleidoscopic, collage universe filled with the vibrant colors of French culture and enhanced with timeless spiritual wisdom will absolutely love it. Bonne dĂ©gustation, et bon voyage!

Provence, you will love yourself through the eyes of this enchanting author, Coco Mary.


I am a school teacher, and have read my fair share of children’s books. This book is so original. It reads like a magazine for children, but has a storyline. As a lover of all things African, there were so many cultural visual references that it made my head spin. I have to warn, though. This book is not for younger children. I would say at least 8 years and up, because of the traumatic incident that occurs. But I commend the author for healing the trauma in such a magical way!
