My Summary:
All her life Marie Antoinette has walked tall with Sebastien, her beloved pug by her side. When the young queen arrives in France what shall happen to their friendship?
My review:
This is my first picture book review because it is the first picture book I have read in so long! I really enjoyed going back and doing the voices and laughing at the sweet humor. It was relaxing, a breath of fresh air and a very fun story that I wanted to share with all of you!
I loved that the dog narrated; watching the progression from Duchess, to Princess, Queen, Wife and Mother was made new through the eyes of Sebastien. 
I borrowed my library’s edition to read and now must get my own copy so that one day I may read this story to my children! 
Notes on the names: Cullen named her pug Sebastien, that was when I knew I must read this book.
Thoughts on the cover: It is tres dulce!
