Cute story about a painter and his dog, as they struggle to find fame and fortune, retain their artistic integrity, and find happiness. I enjoyed the story and found the theme about being honest and true to yourself to be very strong. The illustrations were very fun and engaging.

Summary: Remy is a struggling artist in Paris. He meets Lulu the dog who becomes his friend and companion. Together they find success until Remy tries to paint with his eyes instead of his heart. Lulu sticks by his side and brings him back to the artist he is meant to be.

Reflection: This is a longer picture book story that older children will like. Can be used to talk about friendship and being true to yourself. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449810852, Hardcover)

Ooh la la! From New York Times bestseller Kevin Hawkes, illustrator of Library Lion and Weslandia, comes the charming story of a dog and her owner who become the toast of Paris.
Lulu and her master, Remy, a passionate but struggling portrait painter, wander the French countryside looking for customers. They don’t need much business —just enough for some figs and cheese to keep their bellies full—but not many people seem to appreciate Remy’s abstract style.
Before long, Lulu secretly lends a paw to Remy’s work and—voilà!—the pair are the most celebrated artists on the salon circuit. If only Remy knew why . . .
With art from both beloved children’s book illustrator Kevin Hawkes and award-winning miniatures artist Hannah Harrison, this funny and heartwarming story about friendship and creativity shows that there are many ways to be good at the same thing . . . and that a true friend is always there for you.
