    1. "Dodsworth in Paris" is a visual chapter book that will appeal to kids in 2nd and 3rd grade. I love the illustrations. I value the fact that its a chapter book that blends solid 2nd grade vocabulary with bigger words, as well as introducing domestic and foreign place names. Kids may enjoy the whimsical adventure of the duck tagging along uninvited. I do have slight reservations about the quality, and thus, the influence upon readers, of characterizations: the duck is a little too unkind and unem [...]

    2. This is the second book in the Dodsworth series by Tim Egan. The story features anthropomorphic characters and the odd pair of Dodsworth (not exactly sure what kind of animal he is) and a duck. It describes the French leg of their journey, continuing where the first book left off. We first discovered this series when we read Dodsworth in Tokyo, and I thought we would go back and read the rest of the series in order. We liked the story and the duck is very silly. Dodsworth is a bit stiff and prop [...]

    3. I like this charming chapter book, which really reminds me of the first books I read as a child, The Little Bear series by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Dodsworth in Paris has four chapters. Each page has four to six lines of print and a square watercolor illustration of the two characters, Dodsworth-who looks like a dog or a badger, and the duck-a plain white duck with no other name. They get a job selling bread. They visit the Louvre, and the Seine River. Dodsworth [...]

    4. I haven't read the first one of these, so I'm not quite sure how Dodsworth and the duck ended up together . . . I do think this is a fairly cute little story -- longer than a picture book, but short enough to read in one sitting with kids who love books. It gives a general introduction to Paris, which I think is great. It's hard for kids to make connections to certain places, and even though this book isn't the most educational in the world, it could help children make connections. And it is ent [...]

    5. Cute early reader with four chapters. Dodsworth visits Paris with his mischievous Duck. There are a few French words, and some surprisingly funny moments. Books this simple strain my suspension of disbelief (i.e. you can't get a job in Paris delivering bread when you don't know the streets of the city or speak French, duh!), but that just means I am not the target audience, eh? I will concentrate on the funny sentence, "Bread flew everywhere."

    6. An interesting little tale of Dodsworth (the mole?) and his pet duck and their adventures in Paris. They arrive, eat, sleep, ring the bells in Notre Dame, climb the Eiffel Tower and lose all their money. Get a job delivering bread, lose the job, go to the Louvre for free, paint a picture that ultimately sells for 100 Euros and hot air balloon over the city. It's short and cute. My four year old loves the crazy tale and we can't wait to read Dodsworth in New York.

    7. Delightful story, in 4 chapters, of Dodsworth's adventures with his duck while visiting Paris. Duck is prickly and prone to misbehavior, but fate is on the side of this tourist duo -- maybe because Dodsworth is so good-hearted. The drawings are superb too -- watercolors in beautiful hues, and figures with real personality; I see a bit of Richard Scarry influence in the animals and situations. I will be looking for more Tim Egan books after this one!

    8. Dodsworth and the duck travel to Paris by ship. They enjoy the food, the sights. From the top of the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre museum, Dodsworth and duck experience all things French. However, all does not go well as duck explores the city. Can Dodsworth save the day?Lovely, sweet illustrations help us to explore Paris and bring the story to life!An adventure that is fun and interesting!!Recommended by Suzi

    9. Love this book.I knew I would, since I loved the first Dodsworth I read.They get into such fun trouble in this book!I really like the short chapters, the full color illustrations, and the simple sentences.The mayhem will keep kids laughingand I'm SURE they will relate to the duck most of all.It's great to see all these landmarks of Paris in an easy reader too!A great book!

    10. Grades 1-2. RL 340. Dodsworth and his silly duck visit Paris. Quite a few big words and some French words thrown in (debonaire, cathedral, euros, galleries). A fun way to introduce another culture in a beginning reader book. Good for reading together with an adult the first couple times through. The illustrations are adorable and reminiscent of more classic readers like Frog and Toad.

    11. Dodsworth and his duck are at it again in the City of Lights. When Duck sends their money sailing as paper airplanes from the Eiffel Tower, their sightseeing vacation takes a turn for the worse. The two resort to delivering bread, performing as a mime in the park, and impressionist painting to fund their trip. Clever and fun.

    12. We love "Dodsworth in (place)" series.Not only the story is entertaining but it is also educational; the book mentions famous places within the city.It is best to read the series in order but the individual books can be enjoyed by itself (however, do read the "The Pink Refrigerator" and "Dodsworth in New York" in those orders, first!).

    13. A very adorable easy reader book about two American animals, Dodsworth and his frustrating partner, the duck, who travel to Paris and have many adventures including visiting the Louvre and becoming part of the Tour de France.

    14. A few odd, non-early-reader words - "debonair", "euro" etc. But adorable story while learning a few things about Paris. My daughter who loves Madeline loved it and laughed out loud at duck a few times.

    15. I read the Kindle version. Short chapters with challenging words; charming illustrations; interesting story with delightful characters. Dodsworth and Duck remind me of Laurell and Hardyemes: art, adventure, ducks, friends, Paris, travel, whatever critter Dodsworth is

    16. The review of this book is accurate about this dog and his duck friend visiting Paris. Great book for anyone who is taking a young child to Paris. Early reader level.

    17. So many funny bits, with getting caught in the Tour de France and the duck throwing paper airplanes of the Eiffel Tower.

    18. #1. A very charming children's adventure tale. Read them in order! The drawings are lovely, and I think everyone will understand Dodsworth's frustrations with his traveling companion, duck.

    19. I enjoy Dodsworth. I love that he goes on adventures in different countries and that it makes learning about these places fun. This is a great transitional chapter book

    20. Dodsworth and the duck are visiting Paris. Dodsworth warns duck not to get into any trouble, so of course, trouble ensues. This early reader has humor and great illustrations.

    21. My students and I both thought this book was not as good as Dodsworth in New York. The book didn't hold their interest as long and we felt the story was lacking the charm the first book brought.

    22. Definitely my new favorite early reader series. Loved the nod to Impressionist painting in this one. Brilliant!
