“Take one incredibly cute dog to Paris. Beautifully illustrate him and scenes around Paris in gouache. Voilà! You have a fun and engaging masterpiece.”—The Picture Book Review

When Hudson, an adventurous terrier, moves to Paris, he loves the new sights and smells. But when he tries to make friends, he discovers the Parisian dogs only speak French! Though initially discouraged, little Hudson's desire to make friends is so strong that he learns French. Hudson becomes a Parisien or "Paris-Chien.” Chien is the French word for dog. By showing how it feels to be the new or different kid in any situation, Paris-Chien strikes a universal chord.

“Chic and so much fun.”—This Picture Book Life
