Highly recommended. ( )
  RaymondJG46 | May 30, 2017 |
Adult Reader Reaction: What a sweet, sweet story. Although the story is a bit predictable, it is still a wonderful read and one that I would highly recommend. The illustrations help add dimension to the action, as well as spotlight Madame Martine's and Max's personalities. I love how Madame Martine's "colors" change at the end of the story.

Pros: Madame Martine and her adorable puppy take us on a light adventure of friendship and change. The narrative is easy to follow, and the illustrations will keep even the youngest listeners glued to the page while you read.

Madame Martine lives in Paris and follows the same routine every day. She takes for granted the beautiful things that exist all around her. She refuses to go to the Eiffel Tower because it's "just for tourists." One day Madame Martine finds a stray dog and decides to take him home. When she tries keeping her dog on the same schedule, he breaks free, leading Madame Martine on a wild chase up the Eiffel Tower! Upon reaching the top, she discovers how much beauty she has been missing all these years. From then on, the two friends try something different every week.
