A Puggle in Paris (2018), written by Dena Fitzpatrick and illustrated by Amelia Gossman, takes readers on a charming romp through Paris, France. Pretty pastel colors, dominated by pink, set the scene with feminine flair as Lucy, a beret wearing puggle, journeys alone to France. Lucy enjoys lunch at the Eiffel Tower, shopping along the Champs-Élysées, and viewing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. Less well-known attractions like Sacré-Cœur, the Catacombs, and Napoleon’s Tomb are also on Lucy’s itinerary.
This is a sweet introduction to Paris landmarks perfect for young readers. A Puggle in Paris is nicely written and charmingly illustrated. Fitzpatrick does a great job introducing Paris in appropriate detail without overwhelming young readers.
