And we’re thrilled to introduce you to ‘Antoinette‘, an equally adorable poodle friend of Gaston with a very special trait, even if it does take a while for her to find it.
She may not look like Mrs Bulldog and she certainly looks much different from her three burly brothers, Rocky, Ricky and Bruno but she is unique in more ways than one.
She hasn’t yet found what makes her special and she’s worried she never will, but Mrs. Bulldog can ‘feel it in her bones’.
Yes, Rocky was clever and tracked down her paw prints, and of course, Ricky raced around quickly to find her and big burly Bruno left no stone unturned, but Antoinette uses her intuition and follows her instinct.
We utterly adore these light-hearted stories, but ones which drive home such a poignant message by Kelly DiPucchio and the texture-filled illustrations that have become synonymous with Christian Robinson are a complete joy.
