Illustrated by Christian Robinson
This is a review of two books. One is called Gaston and the other is Antoinette.
Gaston is about a bulldog who has poodle siblings. He meets Antoinette in the park one day. She is a poodle with bulldog siblings. In Gaston, they switch families but they realize it is not the right thing. So Gaston goes back to living with Poodles and Antoinette bulldogs. But they all stayed friends and won’t tell you the cute ending.
In Antoinette, Gaston’s sibling follows a butterfly and gets lost. The sibling’s name is Oh LaLa! Antoinette helps save the day.
These are cute books. You should get both like I have. The stories are nice. I think the story is about family being more than looking a like. It is about fitting and finding your place. Sometimes you might look out of place but you belong.
I think Antoinette is about friends always looking out for each other, just like family.
I really like the art by Christian Robinson. He has a really fun style using paint and makes cool prints. I like that you can see the brush strokes
