With appealing, richly detailed double-page illustrations in pencil and watercolor, Bonaparte tells the story of a resourceful French dog who is determined to find his boy master, Jean Claude, when the latter is shipped off to school in Paris. Resorting to a variety of droll costumes that will get him into an educational institution where “NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED”, Bonaparte, with his dogged determination, eventually gets his way. “NOW DOGS ARE ALLOWED” at Jean Claude’s school. Viva Bonaparte!
