About the Author, Sheron Long:
Sherry first visited France as a student in Grenoble and has returned dozens of times to soak in the joie de vivre. The best trip, though, was when Chula came along. Relying on her years as a publisher, Sherry coaxed Chula into telling the true story of her travels and then turned Chula’s barks into print.
Chula Wula D’Augue
Chula, whose first name means “pretty” in Spanish, is a 9-year-old, 30-pound Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie) with a true sense of adventure. Whether chasing squirrels in her backyard in Carmel Valley, California, or evicting feline squatters from her backyard in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Chula gives it her all. She’s always ready to drop everything and go on a trip to town or across the globe. And she does it all with that lovely Sheltie smile.
Review (done by my blogger friend, Susan):
A truly delightful story of a travel to France, told from a dog’s point of view. In the enchanced version, the pictures, videos and music were done just beautifully. This is just a fantastic book from front to back and an experience I’ve never encountered before. “Dog Trots Globe—To Paris & Provence” comes in hardcover, standard e-book version and the enchanced e-book version. A must read for all ages.
I give “Dog Trots Globe—To Paris & Provence” a 5 star rating!
My notes: This is not a book I have read, but if I respond to the review, I would say it sounds pretty good. I love books about animals–dogs are always winners. It is hard to say whether I would get the physical copy since I don’t have an Ipad, but I bet some of my lovely readers have one!
