Happy! Happy! brings readers back to a small town in France and our friends Gaston the dog, Gregorie the Parrot and Mr. Marceau, their owner. Gaston and Gregorie loved each other and they loved playing together outside, and sitting in the fruit tree orchard. Gregorie sleeps in a cage on the table in the dining room and Gaston sleeps on a rug beside the table, so they won't be alone. Their favorite time is Christmas, because they get to listen to music Mr. Marceau plays on the music machine and Gaston loves to hear his parrot friend sing, "Sing! Sing!" And at Christmas, Mr. Marceau has a Christmas tree, reads Father Christmas stories, and these two friends love to listen. They were so excited about the story Mr. Marceau read to them on Christmas Eve that they waited until he had gone to bed, and then they did something very special with shoes that would make them all happy on Christmas morning. What are these two friends up to this time?
Jackie Ferrell has written another amazing and precious little book featuring a dog named Gaston, a parrot named Gregorie and a man named Mr. Marceau. I love these two little critters and was so happy to read this latest book, Happy! Happy! Gaston and Gregorie always have something up their sleeve and this time it has to do with pulling shoes out of the closet and putting them around the Christmas tree. What do empty shoes have to do with Christmas or a Christmas tree? Well, believe it or not, these two have something very unique and interesting in mind. I think this is the cutest idea, and my favorite so far in this series of children's e-books. Illustrator Scott Ferrell does a fantastic job with the illustrations. I love the illustrations, and they are created in a way that they don't take a lot of space on your e-readers. I highly recommend Happy! Happy! to everyone, because this story is just too cute. And don't wait until Christmas to download it; you can read it any time, along with the other books in this series. Be sure to check them all out on Amazon.com.
