Description

Mr. Dash may not have a pedigree (he can count five different breeds of dogs as family), but from his furry head to his wagging tail, he is a gentleman. His fine manners make him a perfect companion to Madame Croissant. Their life together is graceful and civilized, what with walks in the park, stamp-collecting, and a passion for flowers.

Mr. Dash is also in charge of delivering Madame Croissant's world-famous cupcakes. All is well until Daphne, Madame Croissant's rather lively niece, arrives to turn the cupcake world upside down.

Filled with humour, this delectable story will appeal to dog-lovers AND cupcake-lovers the world over.

Review quote

Praise for Merci Mister Dash!
"Brightly colored acrylic paintings show Mr. Dash at his best.... Generously sprinkled with easily understood French phrases, this well-paced portrait of patience and toleration ends with a satisfying nap by the fire and the promise of a quiet, Daphne-free day. Children will empathize with Daphne and Mr. Dash and perhaps gain an understanding of both positions. A good choice to generate discussion, this will appeal to energetic youngsters and dog lovers alike.
