Pierre is excited about his trip to Paris for the poodle championship, and he can't wait to see the sights. But when his beloved Miss Murphy leaves him in the hotel room, Pierre takes matters into his own paws. He slips out of their room and makes his way to the top of the Eiffel Tower! When a storm erupts, Pierre catches hold of an umbrella and is swept into the sky over Paris. He lives his dream of being Pierre Le Poof-Daredevil Poodle. In true Pierre fashion, he stops at a Dumpster for a snack on the way back to his hotel. When he returns to his room, his pompoms are a mess, and the dog show is only hours away!
Adventure-seeking poodle Pierre Le Poof heads to Paris with his owner, Miss Murphy, in his third outing. All he can think about is getting the chance to climb the Eiffel Tower, but when Miss Murphy tours the city, she leaves Pierre in the hotel room. Escaping, he meets a dog named Coco, who shows him the way to the tower, where he grabs an umbrella and sails down, la Mary Poppins. Though Pierre s successful ascent and descent of the tower is over in a flash, and his big win at a poodle show is similarly anticlimactic, readers should appreciate Pierre s daring. Ages 4 8.
