First Reviews Are In ; )

“Try and resist the charm of this book. Go ahead, try. See? I told you it was <i>impossible</i>(French-accent required)...and that is only the cover! In each of Jackie's paintings the details ring true and the vibrancy of the colors perfectly reflect Le Midi. I just find this book wonderful.” <b>Lost in Arles</b>

“The drawings are absolutely charming and Hudson is a winning narrator.”  <b><a href="http://annmah.net/2015/05/19/tuesday-dinner-with-jackie-clark-mancuso/" target="_blank">Ann Mah, Mastering the Art of French Eating</a></b>

“This lovable pooch quits trying to imitate the other dogs around him, in time to discover what his own talent is.”  <a href="http://french-word-a-day.typepad.com" target="_blank"><b>Kristin Espinasse, French Word-a-Day</b></a>

“My kids love these books!” Mama Smiles 

“Wishing to be in the south of France? Mancuso takes our sweet pup Hudson on a trip full of color and romance in this follow-up to Paris-Chien: Adventures of an Expat Dog.… in a fun, crude style with gouache, which makes us think of Maira Kalman. A-!” Cleveland Plain Dealer 

“Hudson teaches readers that we lose ourselves when we try to be like others....Children as young as three will be happy to sit through the story to find out what happens next.… And rest assured, you’ll want to take a trip to France after you’ve finished the book.” Smart Books for Smart Kids 

“[B]right, colorful scenes provide a fantastic backdrop to the story. Eager to see what adventures the small dog will experience, children will take a journey through another country while learning a little French.” DogChannel 

“Hudson in Provence was a very funny and entertaining book.” French Entrée, May June 2015

“I have a special place in my heart for books that take place in other countries…an adorable dog from Paris travels to Provence and tries to be like the local dogs…the message: we should be ourselves and use our own talents to make the world a better place.” Geo Librarian 

“You will be enchanted by the charming illustrations of this little dog’s French adventures. A delightful story for animal lovers young and old alike!” Modern Dog

“Hudson heads to the countryside where he meets a lot of canine friends. Gaston herds sheep. Philippe is a truffle hunter! What can Hudson do to become a Provençal dog? He begins to paint doggy portraits and holds an art show!” Good Reads With Ronna
