Raised in a family of talented bulldogs, Antoinette the poodle wonders what makes her special. She gets the chance to prove herself and find what she’s good at when puppy Ooh-la-la goes missing.
This is an adorable book that shouts “Read out loud.” “Read to a child.” “Enjoy.” There is such a beautiful sense of fun and innocence here, the illustrations and the words are fun, full of energy and cute.
There are many messages in the book that a child will absorb; about friendships, confidence…about individuals having different talents/abilities. All have merits. But I think you should just read this book for the simple pleasure and fun of reading a delightful, entertaining book (and for being able to say Ooh- La- La many times). 🙂
