Murphy, the yellow Labrador who needed to watch his weight, is back and this time he's jetting off to an exciting vacation in Paris. Traveling on a four-star "Heavenly Pets" package, Murphy and his owner, Cheryl, visit the Luxuembourg Gardens, tour the Louvre, enjoy a night on the town, and, last but not least, climb the Eiffel Tower. Will Paris ever be the same?

Emily Bolam's paint and ink artwork is perfectly calibrated to this loving, through-a-dog's eye view of the City of Lights. With only the sparest of line work, she coaxes all sorts of expressions from Murphy from complete annoyance to magical delight. A cultural experience expressed in a way that will captivate even the youngest reader. Dog lovers, young and old, will be enchanted by Murphy's exploits.
