In a delightful sequel to 2014s Gaston, Gaston the bulldogs poodle counterpart, Antoinette, wonders what she has to offer compared to her bulldog brothers Rocky, Ricky, and Bruno, who arerespectivelyclever, fast, and strong. Antoinettes mother has faith: Chin up! she barks. You have something extra special. I can feel it in my bones! That something extra is persistence, readers discover, as the two canine families realize that Gastons brother Ooh-La-La is missing: Antoinette felt a tug in her heart and a twitch in her nose. She could notwould notgive up! From then on its an action-packed romp, as Antoinette trails Ooh-La-La to the Louvre, smuggles herself past the guards, and carries out a heart-stopping rescuecomplete with an instant replayatop a famous sculpture. Robinsons Parisian spreads are full of retro verve, but he doesnt overlook the citys ordinary inhabitantsa garbage collector, a bubble blower in the park, a woman in a head scarf driving a car. DiPucchio excels in showing rather than telling, and its clear that beneath Antoinettes fluffy exterior lies the heart of a hero. Ages 48. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Feb.)
