Profile Picture

Henri and the Magnificent Snort is a fifty-five-page picture book that tells the story of Henri, a little French bulldog, who lives in New York but moves with his human mom to San Diego, California. He loved New York, especially Central Park, all his friends, building snow mutts, and going to the dog park. So, he was worried about what California would be like. However, there were palm trees and the seaside, a pool, and Doggie Day Care. He didn’t feel brave about day care.

Profile Picture

Henri, the French Bulldog, loves his home in bustling New York City. He lives in an apartment, has a dog walker, and steers clear of the pond in Central Park. When his mom decides to move to California, Henri is not so sure he’ll adjust to their new home. But, when he arrives, Henri is pleasantly surprised by the warm breeze and palm trees, and even meets new friends on his first day of doggie daycare. The next day, though, his new friends hear his unique snorting sound.
