Crepes by Suzette written by Monica Wellington. It's about Suzette who goes around with her card cooking and selling crepes to people. The backgrounds are photographs from around Paris including places like Eiffel Tower, The Louvre. Suzette and the people in each scene are drawn but the people are based on various forms of art (Luncheon in the Grass by Manet, Degas' scultpure of The Fourteen-Year Old Dancer, etc.). Each page incorprates a couple of French words.

In the back of the book is a listing of what each photo is, the art that each drawing was based on, a glossery of the French words (but no pronunication) and a recipe for crepes.
