A Mystery at the Museum

As Pansy in Paris begins, we are introduced to a pampered toy poodle named Pansy. Although she now lives at the luxurious Palace Hotel, Pansy was once a shelter dog, rescued from her sad fate by a sweet little girl named Avery. Now, the one-time shelter pet is a famous figure, known far and wide for having solved a mystery and nabbed a thief.

It is this celebrity that leads Avery and Pansy to their next adventure. It seems an inspector all the way in Paris, France has heard of Pansy’s crime solving abilities, and begs for her to come to France and solve the mystery of a painting that has been stolen from their museum. Soon, Avery and Pansy are off to save the day again. In Paris, puppies, dog biscuits, and even more stolen paintings abound. It’s up to Avery and Pansy to follow the clues and catch the sneaky culprit redhanded.

Pansy in Paris is a cute story with tons of colorful illustrations to keep kids eyes busy as they lose themselves in the story. The illustrations lean towards the silly, with exaggerated facial expressions and a penchant for dog-themed puns (Leonardo DogVinci, anyone?).  While there are plenty of hijinks as Pansy and her owner follow the clues, the action is decidedly tame, with nothing to worry even the most anxious of children. Add in about a million different puppies gracing every page of the book, and you’re bound to have a hit with your dog loving kiddos.

The book itself is made to stand up to tis young fans. The sturdy hardcover features a full color drawing of Pansy herself, the Eiffel Tower looming in the background. There’s a removable book cover, adding an extra bit of protection from wear and tear, and the pages themselves are made of a nice, thick paper that should stand up well to young ones who like to “help” turn the pages.
