Illustrating Stories in Easy French

Teacher, author, and private tutor to students all over the world, France Dubin is a writer of short stories and stories in simple or “easy French.” The goals of her books are to help her current students or those seeking to learn and continue their French education. In her new series, belles histoires à Paris, France wanted to create a cohesive set of illustrations, with the Eiffel Tower and French meals as the backdrop to her three-part series about Jacqueline, an American divorcée, who is going to Paris for the first time in her life.
