Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This poodle in Paris is the most perfect poodle, and she is known as La Grande Fifi. If you were to ask her where she lives, she would tell you she has five homes. Her first home is in a bistro with Madame and Pierre. Her second home is in a shop on the Champs Elysees with many fine dresses on display. Home number three is with the pigeons and Madame Baguette by the Eiffel Tower. Number four is on a boat with three friends. Home number five is on Monmartre in the Moulin Rouge. Fifi dances there every Saturday night. She does the Cancan, much to her delight. If you are ever in Paris you will want to see Ms. Fifi dance. If you ask her where she lives, you will hear she has a home for each finger on your hand. The unusual, fanciful illustrations are a combination of collaged paper, three-dimensional objects and paint. The accompanying CD includes 12 songs sung by the writer, as well as printable files with the original lyrics and musical arrangements.
