About us


LEAP & HOP is a series of interactive books for kids who travel and want to learn about different cultures and play along the way.

ISABELLE DEMENGE is a native of Paris who moved to New York City to start a family. She has lived many lives: mother of three boys, banking & finance lawyer in a major international firm, world traveler, amateur photographer and writer. A graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and the University of Paris II, she is now based in Hong Kong where she enjoys family trips, photography, and travel writing.

Having passed her kids’ crash-test, she is now developing Leap & Hop, a series of children’s travel books.
