Leap & Hop is a series of cultural travel books for children aged 8 and older by Isabelle Demenge and illustrated by Emilie Sarnel. The current destinations offered in the collection are: Bali, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India (Rajasthan), Paris and Sri Lanka. The idea of the series is to turn a “grown-up” trip into a fun adventure for children. These interactive books aim at getting children to discover a new country or a big city and learn about the local culture through interesting information as well as games and activities. For parents, the books provide an ideal way to stick to a grown-up itinerary with a focus on cultural sites, and to create an unforgettable travel experience for their children. As kids play along by drawing, writing, and collecting items of interest throughout the journey, they’ll find themselves creating a very personal souvenir as the book is transformed into a travel scrapbook for them to keep.

In addition to general information such as history, geography, currency, food, architecture, religious beliefs and traditions, Leap and Hop Bali will take the children to the main Balinese sites scattered across the island. The kids will be engaged as they explore the main temples such as Pura Besakih, the remains of the royal palace in Klungkung, visit the Monkey Forest, the Bird and Reptile Park, and other areas with fun and educational challenges that vary from place to place, such as scavenger hunts, “I Spy” games, quizzes, puzzles, and word searches.
The next travel books will take your children to Myanmar and London.

About the Authur and Illustrator

Isabelle Demenge is a native of Paris who moved to New York City to start a family. She has lived many lives: corporate finance lawyer, mother of three boys, amateur photographer, world traveler and writer. Facing the difficulties of traveling with children in Cambodia, she decided to write for her kids the book that she couldn’t find… Having passed her kids’ crash-test, she continued developing a series of children’s travel books for other destinations. Her books help families move from “kid–friendly destinations” to places that are culturally richer in a way that all will enjoy with information hand-picked for children and interactive games.

Emilie Sarnel graduated from French art school ENSAD, "École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs", in Paris where she was professionally trained in graphic design. After graduation, Emilie went to Shanghai to provide art direction for the creative advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, that later relocated her to Tokyo in 2009 as graphic designer. She left Tokyo for Hong Kong in 2011 and started her own creative design studio in May 2013. Among other projects, she is now art directing the Leap & Hop book series written by Isabelle Demenge.
