What's Gaston About

Publisher Summary

A bulldog and a poodle learn that family is about love, not appearances in this adorable doggy tale from New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and illustrator Christian Robinson. This is the story of four puppies: Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, Ooh-La-La, and Gaston. Gaston works the hardest at his lessons on how to be a proper pooch. He sips—never slobbers! He yips—never yaps! And he walks with grace—never races! Gaston fits right in with his poodle sisters. But a chance encounter with a bulldog family in the park—Rocky, Ricky, Bruno, and Antoinette—reveals there’s been a mix-up, and so Gaston and Antoinette switch places. The new families look right…but they don’t feel right. Can these puppies follow their noses—and their hearts—to find where they belong?

It seems two dogs may have been taken home with the wrong pup families, but they decide they are exactly where they’re supposed to be. :) This fun and beautifully illustrated book has a great message about being yourself.

The story is cute and the message is sweet, but it’s the artwork that makes this book a real winner for me. It’s colorful, simple, and has a mid-century flair that makes me want to use it as the inspiration for decorating my house. Another big plus: the text is brief enough to really give you a chance to visually explore each page. We love Gaston!
