Review:

Two sisters take their affable dachshund Zaza on a Paris shopping spree in search of the perfect birthday gift for their mama. Zaza cavorts behind the girls, creating disorder at every turn as they wander through a bakery, a flower shop, and a shoe store. Finally they decide on a gift mama is sure to like--something homemade. (Ages 5 to 9)

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3?They're back?the two irrepressible urchins who searched the streets of Paris in Where's Our Mama? (Dutton, 1991). Now they're hoping to find the perfect birthday present for their beloved parent. While the children innocently eye the possibilities from the fleuriste to the patisserie, Zaza, their dachshund, creates chaos at every stop. Goode alternates single-page "before" and "after" scenes with double-page illustrations of full-blown, action-packed havoc. Cherry-colored dresses tumble, songbirds revel in their release, and a careening chef juggles the layers of a cake while Zaza happily devours spilling candy balls. The children matter-of-factly reject each potential gift. But fortune smiles on the trio when Zaza tracks down just the thing?a set of paints. In a clever nod to Seurat, the children create a masterpiece for their mother while sitting in the park. The finished portrait of Mama incorporates elements from the shopping trip to give it a fresh and funny look. The shop signs are filled with French and English puns; the watercolor scenes are imbued with effervescence and light. Readers who look closely will see that it's a dog's world. A sweet confection with wide appeal?the creme de la creme.?Wendy Lukehart, Dauphin County Library, Harrisburg, PA
