Dodsworth and his (crazy) friend the duck have just arrived in Paris. It is their first time in the City of Lights, and they are ready for some adventures magnifique! Right away they see mimes, painters, and people wearing berets. They climb the Eiffel Tower, and the duck even finds some bent-over guy who rings bells for a living. It looks like it is going to turn out to be a great vacation in Paris . . . but trouble is never far from a misbehaving duck!

Praise For…

"Kids are sure to enjoy the zany humor and identify with the duck’s playful nature. Some French words ("beret," "debonair," "magnifique," "bonjour," "monsieur") are an interesting addition to this easy reader while others are easily understood through the illustrations and context."--School Library Journal

"Egan’s refined ink-and-watercolor illustrations depict a Paris populated by nattily dressed animals, a place where the duck, despite his apparent attempts to behave, can get into trouble at multiple famous landmarks."--Horn Book
