All about Claris

The chicest mouse in Paris! This is the story of a tiny mouse with big dreams and an even bigger heart.

A best selling series about kind hearted Claris and her adventures, from Versailles to Rome to New York and more.


Creating Claris

On a beautiful summer’s day Megan sat on her balcony at Iconic Le Bristol Hotel sketching the whimsical buildings of Paris when something caught her eye… An adorable little mouse on a neighbouring building scurrying across the rooftops.

‘How wonderfully chic!’ she thought, ‘would it be to live in Paris, even if you were only a tiny little mouse!’

And so the magical story of Claris was created… What adventures will follow the Chicest Mouse in Paris?
