Pierre is determined to visit the Eiffel Tower—with or without Miss Murphy!

Pierre is excited about his trip to Paris for the poodle championship, and he can't wait to see the sights. But when his beloved Miss Murphy leaves him in the hotel room, Pierre takes matters into his own paws. He slips out of their room and makes his way to the top of the Eiffel Tower! When a storm erupts, Pierre catches hold of an umbrella and is swept into the sky over Paris. He lives his dream of being Pierre Le Poof—Daredevil Poodle. In true Pierre fashion, he stops at a Dumpster for a snack on the way back to his hotel. When he returns to his room, his pompoms are a mess, and the dog show is only hours away!

"Adventure-seeking poodle Pierre Le Poof heads to Paris with his owner, Miss Murphy, in his third outing...Readers should appreciate Pierre's daring." - Publishers Weekly

"Pierre's charm is what sets this book apart from other animal adventures...Pierre’s faithfulness to French clichés is silly and fun and never strays into insensitive territory. His eternal optimism is also appealing...Beck's beautiful illustrations are usually a full-page spread with a smaller illustration on the page with the text. The bright colours are visually appealing, and Pierre's face is very expressive...The humour and adventure in Pierre in the Air will appeal to a wide range of children. Although this book is part of a series, it works well as a stand-alone. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Beck's story and illustrations are great fun. Her whimsical watercolour and pencil drawings are packed with Parisian details...and beautifully capture Pierre's joie de vivre. Particularly delightful is the sequence showing Pierre going over the edge of the famed landmark and debonairly sailing through the sky. The book is perfect read-aloud material for the kindergarten set, with challenging vocabulary for early readers." - Quill & Quire

"Children will enjoy Pierre's predicament and empathize with him...Beck portrays Pierre as a loveable, curious poodle who wants to experience life to the fullest...Her soft-coloured, detailed illustrations will invite children to look for Pierre on every page. Children would enjoy this story as a teacher readaloud. Highly recommended." - Resource Links

"Beck's watercolour paintings create a whimsical personality for Pierre, who can be rumpled as well as carefully groomed...All the humans definitely take a back seat to the spunky canine." - Center for Children's/Young Adult Books, MSU

"Fans of the previous titles will want to read this one." - School Library Journal

"[A] slim but entertaining tale." - The Horn Book Guide

"Nicely illustrated and a good story for dog lovers." - Eastern New Jersey Regional Library Cooperative
