Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio
[book cover]

This is the story of four puppies: Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, Ooh-La-La, and Gaston.

Gaston works the hardest at his lessons on how to be a proper pooch. He sips, never slobbers! He yips, never yaps! He walks with grace, never races! Gaston fits right in with his poodle sisters.

But a chance encounter with a bulldog family in the park (Rocky, Ricky, Bruno, and Antoinette) reveals there's been a mix-up, and so Gaston and Antoinette switch places. The new families look right, but they don't feel right. Can these puppies follow their noses and their hearts to find where they belong?
