Marcel the Frenchie is probably the cutest dog to amble onto the #kidlit scene in a long time.  In Eda Akaltun’s debut picture book, her smart and vibrant prints and collage commingle with her love of vintage 50s elements and paper ephemera.  The last page spread hints at a future trip for Marcel to a city whose streets he will likely fall in love with.  For New Yorkers, dog lovers and city goers, this book is a serious treat.

Also, Marcel’s on Instagram—check out his favorite NYC eats and stomping grounds @marcel.thefrenchie.  By Eda Akaltun and published by Flying Eye Books.
