Summary

Summary

Another hilarious misadventure for Gaspard and Lisa! It's almost Christmas and Gaspard and Lisa need to find a present for their teacher, fast. Gaspard is full of ideas, but none of them seems quite right. Luckily, Lisa comes up with a clever idea just in time. With the help of some glue and a plastic shower curtain, Gaspard and Lisa manage to surprise their teacher with the perfect Christmas gift.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The irresistible canine heroes of the paper-over-board Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa series set out to make a gift for their teacher in Gaspard and Lisa's Christmas Surprise by Anne Gutman, illus. by Georg Hallensleben. As the two attempt to fashion a raincoat from a red shower curtain and Krazy Glue, it's hard to say which is funnier, the sight of the dogs in Hallensleben's zippy acrylics or Gutman's deadpan text.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-A droll entry in an appealing series about two young dogs. Gaspard and Lisa decide to give their teacher a raincoat for Christmas, and the shower curtain at Gaspard's house seems to be just what they need to make it. After accidentally gluing it onto him, then attempting to dye it yellow, the pair's efforts result in something unexpected but wonderful-a raincoat for Mrs. Dupont's dog. The handsomely composed oil paintings lend an unpretentious, childlike quality to this French import.-S. P. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
