...the little dachshund seems heroic, nearly life-sized—quite a feat when he is sharing a story about a painter who most agree was himself larger than life. A delight for dog lovers
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Lump the dachshund is content living with David in Italy. But he needs a vacation from Big Dog, who hounds him day and night. So when David announces that he's off to the south of France to photograph a famous painter, Lump positively scrambles at the chance to ride along. At the villa, Pablo Picasso greets them and is enchanted with the little dog he calls Lumpito. The feeling is mutual; from that moment on, the two become soul mates. Lump loves David. But how can he show his master, and Picasso, that he is home at last?

Lumpito and the Painter from Spain is inspired by the true story of Picasso's love affair with a dachshund named Lump who came for a visit, refused to leave and became immortalized in a number of the artist's paintings and drawings.
