Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615545424, Hardcover)With gouache illustrations of dogs, people, parks, markets, and cafes that bring Paris to life, the story of Hudson, an adventurous Norwich Terrier who moves to Paris, is as much for dog lovers and Francophiles as it is for kids. Hudson loves the new sights and smells, but when he tries to make friends, an obstacle arises—the dogs only speak French. When his mom suggests going to French class, Hudson discovers other ex-pat dogs are in the same boat. Determined to make friends, he hits the books and things begin to look up; Hudson becomes a Parisian, or rather, a Paris-chien (chien means "dog" in French). Demonstrating a message to children about how to cope with change in their lives, little Hudson's desire to make friends and thrive in his new environment is so strong that he learns a new language. French words that appear in the illustrations are defined in a glossary, so the book also serves as an introduction to learning French. Hudson's successful experience will be a consolation to any child set down in a new school, city, or country.
