Title:  Antoinette

Author:  Kelly DiPucchio

Illustrator:  Christian Robinson

Antoinette the puppy feels a little lost. Her brothers all have extraordinary talents. Ricky is fast, Rocky is clever, and Bruno is strong. But when one of their friends goes missing in the crowded and noisy streets of Paris, Ricky, Rocky, and Bruno cannot find her. Only Antoinette, with her excellent detective skills and dogged determination, manages to find their friend and save her from danger. Like Gaston, Antoinette touches on themes of family, friendship, love, and self-worth.
