"Rooftoppers" by Katherine Rundell

'Rooftoppers'  by  Katherine Rundell
★★★★★

Charles, an eccentric, erudite bachelor with a heart full of love finds a baby floating in a cello case in the middle of the English Channel. He takes her home, names her Sophie, and notifies the proper authorities who reluctantly agree to let him keep her.  Charles and Sophie have a wonderful life together until she turns 12 when the National Childcare Agency informs Charles that they need to send Sophie to an orphanage because they feel that he cannot teach a young woman what she needs to know.  Charles and Sophie escape to Paris on a rooftop adventure of a lifetime searching for her mother. This sweet, charming book will win, and warm the hearts of all who read it.
