Title:  Gaston

Author:  Kelly DiPucchio

Illustrator:  Christian Robinson

Gaston the puppy has never been quite as fancy as his sisters Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, and Ooh-La-La. One day his mother, Mrs. Poodle, takes Gaston and his sisters to the park. There, they meet Mrs. Bulldog and her four puppies Ricky, Rocky, Bruno, and Antoinette. It soon becomes clear that there has been a mistake; surely Gaston belongs with Mrs. Bulldog and her rough and tumble sons, and Antoinette must belong with Mrs. Poodle and her graceful daughters. Gaston and Antoinette switch families, but everyone finds themselves unhappy with the new arrangement. Gaston is a sweet and heartfelt story about what it means to be a family.
