Dear Reader,

Have you met Pansy? She is a brave little poodle who solves mysteries with the help of her best friend, a little girl named Avery.

In PANSY IN PARIS, Pansy and Avery get a letter from the Mayor of Paris, France. He needs them to help figure out who is stealing paintings from the museum. With only one clue, Pansy and Avery follow the trail, seeing lots of interesting sights along the way. They solve the mystery, catch the thief, and get the art back for the people of Paris. The two best friends are heroes!

I hope Pansy inspires you to look carefully at the world around you, help other people, and appreciate your best friend — whether she is a person or a poodle!
