About this Item

32 pages. Hardcover. New book. CHILDREN'S BOOKS. A different kind of adventure story, The Goldfish in the Chandelier takes place just outside of Paris in the early 1800s. Uncle Henri is stuck. He has been commissioned to design a chandelier for a great house in Paris, but he can't figure out what form it will take. His young nephew, Louis Alexandre, comes to the rescue with some dazzling ideasÑinspired by Alexander the Great and the first hot-air balloon flights over ParisÑthat surprise them both. Together, they use a lot of imagination to create something that never existed before Ñ something new, unexpected, and very beautiful. This delightful story was inspired by the Grard-Jean Galle chandelier, one of the most popular pieces in the J. Paul Getty Museum's impressive collection of French decorative arts. For children ages 7 to 10. Formerly on staff at the Getty Research Institute, Casie Kesterson currently is a consultant specializing in matters relating to the history of collecting. Gary Hovland's illustrations have appeared in such nationally and internationally known publications as the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. His illustrations for If the Walls Could Talk: Family Life at the White House (Simon & Schuster, 2004) won a Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award in 2005. "It's a lot of entertainment in a small space . . . that develops the gratifying theme of the child mentored by a loving adult." - Publishers Weekly (Key Words: Children's Books, Goldfish, Grard-Jean Galle Chandelier, Chandeliers, Casie Kesterson, Gary Hovland).
