Hudson in Provence (A Paris-Chien Adventure) by Jackie Clark Mancuso

The follow up to Paris-Chien: Adventures of an Ex-pat Dog.

A new adventure for Hudson, in the South of France, he escapes the hustle and bustle of city life to become a provençal dog. Only Hudson is not cut out for this way of life.

I love this book, it’s witty, has a wonderful sense of place and is beautifully painted. Jackie Clark Mancuso is an exciting talent in the world of picture books.

The book is also filled with French vocabulary with a glossary of terms and phrases at the back. I am currently compiling a new book list for my school and shall be recommending both these books for every classroom.

The stories are wonderful and the artwork is stunning!
