Eleven-year-old Cornelia is the daughter of two world-famous pianists—a legacy that should feel fabulous, but instead feels just plain lonely. She surrounds herself with dictionaries and other books to isolate herself from the outside world. But when a glamorous neighbor named Virginia Somerset moves next door with her servant Patel and a mischievous French bulldog named Mister Kinyatta, Cornelia discovers that the world is a much more exciting place than she had originally thought.
An unforgettable story of friendship and adventure that takes readers around the world and back again, Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters is a dazzling first novel by Lesley M. M. Blume.

This book is amazing! Im re-reading it and im picking up so many details i hadnt noticed b4!!!
Loved this book! Very cute and inspiring. I wanted to board a plane to Europe every time I opened it up.
I first read this book back in 2006. I was in middle school at the time and picked it out for the cute dog on the cover. Now in college I still consider this one of my favorite books. The adventures found inside are as thrilling as the title suggests! I highly suggest it as it explains the importance of getting to know the world around you in a colorful way, plus it's a fun read if you want to expand your vocabulary.
