Hudson and the Puppy: Lost in Paris
Hudson is a dog who lives in Paris, France. He likes to eat baguettes, ride on the carousel, go to the movies. He likes Charlie Chaplan movies with dogs. There’s a puppy following him. Hudson asks if he’s lost. Hudson takes him to lots of real places in Paris. (There are names of the places, so you can go there yourself.) Hudson is trying to find the puppy’s home. He tries to get someone to adopt the puppy, but no one does. After that, the puppy finds his home. Where? Read the book to find out.
I liked this book. The author tells you all sorts of locations you can go in France. There’s a lot of French in the book, but it is mostly English. All the French that is in there gets translated. There’s a French-to-English dictionary at the back of the book.
The story was heartwarming and cute. It’s not that realistic. Dogs can’t ride scooters or buy baguettes by themselves. I really liked the illustrations. My favorite is the one where the puppy says his first words in the book: “Wouaf! Ca va!” This would be a good library story-time book. I will read a lot more Paris-Chien Adventure books.
