“Hudson, a plucky terrier, can’t wait to meet some French dogs while spending a year in Paris. When he finally finds a dog park, an obstacle arises: The dogs only speak French . . . Hudson eventually absorbs the language, thanks to lessons from—who else?—a French poodle . . . The story showcases Mancuso's playful gouache paintings of Paris and its human and canine denizens, and she gives Hudson a bold, amusing narrative voice.” —Publishers Weekly

What's a dog to do when he and his human move to Paris and all the dogs there only speak French? Hudson tells his story in this super cute book. Think of it as "Me Talk Pretty One Day" from the point of view of a dog and written and illustrated specifically for children. I know kids will respond well to it because it's colorful, and it's about dogs! I love that there's a little French-English dictionary in the back. I will be putting this on my staff recommendations display at the library!
