Description
A bulldog and a poodle learn that family is about love, not appearances in this adorable doggy tale from New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and illustrator Christian Robinson.

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?


About the Author
Kelly DiPucchio is a "New York Times" bestselling author with more than fifteen books to her credit, including "Crafty Chloe" and "Zombie in Love." She lives in Michigan with her family and a yippy Bichon Frise who does not like anything proper, or precious, or pink. Kelly dreams of visiting ooh-la-la Paris someday, and you can visit her online at Kelly.DiPucchio.com.

Just like Gaston, Christian Robinson has learned that what looks right might not always feel right. Today, Christian is happy to say that illustrating children s books such as "Harlem s Little Blackbird" by Renee Watson and "Rain" by Linda Ashman feels very right to him. If it feels right to you, consider visiting him online at TheArtofFun.com."
