When Hudson, an adventurous Norwich terrier, moves to Paris, he loves the sights and smells. But when he tries to make friends, he discovers the Parisian dogs only speak French. Though initially disheartened, little Hudson's desire to make friends is so strong that he learns a new language. Paris-Chien strikes a universal chord as it shows how it feels to be the new kid in any situation.

Gouache illustrations of markets, cafes, dogs, and parks make Paris come alive. French words appear in a petit dictionnaire at the end, so you'll even learn a little French.
