Explore Paris with two lovable pups in this story of friendship and compassion. In the third outing of the bestselling Paris Chien Adventures, Hudson has become the consummate Parisian: a gourmet who loves good food, a cinéphile who loves movies, and a flâneur who knows his adopted city inside out, from the Pont Neuf to the Périphérique.

Hudson to the rescue! When Hudson encounters a lost puppy, our hero takes him on a whirlwind tour of Paris — on foot, vespa and bateau mouche — to find his home. What will Hudson do when he realizes the puppy is homeless?
petit dictionnaire of French words serves as an introduction to French.
