Publisher's Weekly Review

A host of picture books join previously published partners. The irresistible dog pals of the Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa series return in two more books by Anne Gutman, illus. by Georg Hallensleben. In Gaspard and Lisa: Friends Forever, Gaspard tells how, when Lisa first arrived as a new student in his class, he didn't like it that everyone said they looked like brother and sister (all the other students are human). But when Lisa won the relay race for his team, they became fast friends. In Lisa in the Jungle, Lisa is jealous that Gaspard went sailing on his summer vacation, while she only went to the pool. So she makes up a story about visiting her uncle in the jungle. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
