Average: 3 (2 votes)

Introducing Pierre—a pooch with a mind of his own. Pierre, a pampered show poodle in training, is torn between his love for his devoted owner, Miss Murphy, and his dreams of running wild in the park. One day, an open door beckons and Pierre escapes. But, this spunky little pooch gets more than he bargains for and learns that home is the best place of all. Pierre Le Poof! is this charming character's first adventure in a new series by author-illustrator Andrea Beck.

A charming story indeed with attractive illustrations and layout. Pity about the Poof bit.
