    1. When I pulled this out of the box, a big grin covered my face as I remembered loving this book as a child. It was just as cute today. A happy couple is employed by a grumpy antiques shop owner at Number Seven, Ruse Petite. He is a fabulous cook, she an excellent cleaner. The couple dream of opening their own restaurant, but for now have to put up with their angry employer. But when she accidentally uncovers the boss' secret, everything is turned upside down.

    2. I can't get over how hilarious the biking pictures in this book are. Seriously, check it out. Another book I'm sure I would have liked as a kid. And since I can't find it here, I'll also mention the other book about Rue Petite, The Chicken Scandal. I actually liked this one more, although I was slightly disturbed by the fate of the chickens.

    3. A classic from my childhood! My parents had a copy but I couldn't find it so I had to resort to paying $5 for it on Thriftbooks! I also can't find the follow up Chicken Scandal and Number Seven Rue Petite so I had to Hit to get a copy! Growing up this was my exposure to French! I am certain my mom even read the names correctly, and the Bonjours and Monsieur were authentic! A fun story from my childhood and it fulfills my 2016 reading challenge of "Read a book you loved as a child"

    4. The first of two picture books about Chef Jean-Pierre & his very capable wife, Isabelle, who long to open a bistro in Paris. This book is about how they attain their goal and the sequel, The Chicken Scandal at Number Seven, Rue Petite, is about how they face adversity after opening their doors. It's a really charming picture book mystery and is one my mom read aloud to me often. I love the pen-and-watercolor illustrations and was thrilled to find a used copy on this year.

    5. I loved this! Delightful and I know I would have loved this as a kid. Tracked it down after reading Sophie Brookover's nostalgic post and I'm so glad I found it. Sadly the second one isn't in our consortium so I'm going to start hunting a used copy.

    6. Originally posted on You Have Your Hands FullThe Mystery at Number Seven, Rue Petite was written by Ellen Shire, and it was originally published in 1978. This is the story of Isabelle and Jean-Pierre, a husband and wife who work for the grumpy Monsieur Pompeux. Isabelle is a very good housekeeper and Jean-Pierre is a talented book, but M. Pompeux always finds something to complain about. They dream about opening up their own restaurant, but it doesn’t seem like their dreams will ever come true [...]

    7. My grand father and I use to play Jean-Pierre and Isabella based on the characters of this book. It will always be a childhood favorite.
