Christian Robinson is one of my favourite illustrators making picture books today. Check out his fantastic website ‘The Art of Fun’.
This is the story of four puppies: Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, Ooh-La-La, and Gaston. Gaston works the hardest at his lessons on how to be a proper pooch. He sips-never slobbers! He yips-never yaps! And he walks with grace-never races! Gaston fits right in with his poodle sisters.
But a chance encounter with a bulldog family in the park-Rocky, Ricky, Bruno, and Antoinette-reveals there’s been a mix-up, and so Gaston and Antoinette switch places. The new families look right…but they don’t feel right. Can these puppies follow their noses-and their hearts-to find where they belong?
