metrosignWould you like to live in a luxurious home and be waited on day and night? Or would you like to lead an adventurous life and learn to do things your own way?

In Metro Cat, Sophie LeBeque gets a taste of both. See which you think she prefers.

metrobubbleEnjoying travel as I do, I wanted to take my family along on trips with me, so I became a group leader for EF Educational Tours. I've led two trips to the city of Paris, and I'd go back in a second. Paris is one of my favorite cities!

On my first trip to Paris, I went with twenty students and adults. As we were rushing through the Metro, we spied something that caught our attention, something that inspired this story. When I saw this man and his beautiful cat, I hurried back to my hotel and scribbled down, "Metro Cat". My story had begun.
