Follow the blog of daily misadventures of Frenchie's Best Friend - Follow the Blog!, as Ethan’s cohort of allies attempts to deceive his overworked mom by setting a nefarious scheme in motion to own a French Bulldog puppy, Frenchie.

Then be sure to check out Frenchie X2. Two adorable Frenchie puppies “had Ethan and his mother at first lick”. Well, at least they had Ethan… A must read for anyone who has ever brought home a brand new puppy X 2 for the very first time.

Puppy training classes, obedience training, fundraising, dog washes, and more await the reader in these two fine books.

Juggling the responsibilities of caring for and training not one new Frenchie puppy, but TWO, while simultaneously keeping his reluctant, bamboozled mother on side is full on! And that’s to say nothing of Ethan’s challenge to maintain a watchful eye on his conniving, eccentric grandmother. Who said puppy ownership X 2 was going to be easy for a thirteen year old?

"I recently retired from my position as Principal of West Bay Elementary and Cypress Park Primary in West Vancouver, British Columbia.  With my newfound freedom and the gift of time, I am happiest when writing my own books for the students with whom I spent my career.  I am hopeful that they’ll enjoy reading my books as much as I’ll have fun writing them."

Mary offers several questions to be used in group discussion, in the classroom or elsewhere.

From single moms to French Bulldog rescues, there is much discussion to be derived from Frenchie's Best Friend and Frenchie X2.

What are people saying?

"Teachers, consider this book for your literature circles as rich discussion can occur about commitment, being principled and multiple intelligences. Today's tech savvy kids will relate to the mix of traditional text and Ethan's communication via his blog. You might even be inspired to have your students respond to this book in a class blog of their own."
