Dodsworth in Paris

Dodsworth and the duck are a classic duo, somewhere between Frog and Toad and Laurel and Hardy…Dodsworth in Paris will engage pre-readers and readers, with plenty to amuse the adults.
Barnes and Noble

Kids are sure to enjoy the zany humor and identify with the duck’s playful nature.
School Library Journal

The deadpan text is matched by the amusing square watercolors, which feature snippets of Paris. An out-of-the-ordinary offering for new readers that moves them to new places, both literally and literarily.
Ilene Cooper, Booklist

Egan’s refined ink-and-watercolor illustrations depict a Paris populated by nattily dressed animals, a place where the duck, despite his apparent attempts to behave, can get into trouble at multiple famous landmarks.
Horn Book

Following on the success of Dodsworth in New York, Egan presents Dodsworth and his droll duck friend as they embark on another adventure, this time to Paris… The charming ink and watercolor illustrations show a duck with (not surprisingly) very little facial expression but lots of body language that is sure to appeal. Magnifique!
