Carmel, CA (I-Newswire) May 18, 2012 - Dog Trots Globe—To Paris & Provence, a new release from OIC Books , gives Francophiles and dog lovers alike a reason to smile this summer travel season. In this light-hearted read told from a dog’s-eye view, author Sheron Long recounts French adventures with her 9-year-old Sheltie, Chula. The 150 vivid photographs take readers right along through outdoor markets, to sidewalk cafes, by the Seine, and into the lavender fields and villages of Provence.
Part armchair travelogue and part canine-memoir, Dog Trots Globe (available in hardcover and ebook) begins with Chula’s long flight from California and her trip by train to Provence. Here, readers join Chula as she wags her way through boulangeries and bistros. They shop with her at a Provençal market, where the sausage table is her favorite. And when Chula joyfully sniffs out the giant lavender and sunflower fields, the feast of photos gives readers a special treat.
A side trip to Paris takes Chula and her readers across the Seine and up to the Eiffel Tower, through busy arrondissements, and to opening night at a gallery. Along the way, the book offers insights into French culture and customs. Readers learn about everything from French cheeses to how the Eiffel Tower is painted. In addition, a helpful Afterword offers useful information on international pet travel.
Published by OIC Books, Dog Trots Globe breaks from traditional travelogues with the inclusion of music and four videos embedded into the enhanced ebook for iPad, and made available online for readers of the hardcover or standard ebook editions. The four videos put readers into the stream of French life on market day in Provence, at a street parade of 3,000 sheep, on a night stroll by the sparkling Eiffel Tower, and in a daytime tour of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
Every OIC book also extends the reading experience with a wealth of bonus content supplied online in the “Extras!” area of the publisher’s website. For example, Francophiles will find helpful links and videos to plan a trip to France, lists of the best travel apps, local blogs, wine routes, and cheese guides. Dog lovers will find information and resources for safe pet travel, fun dog quotes and sayings, funny dog videos, and more.
Dog Trots Globe is available in hardcover directly from OIC Books . Hardcover and ebook editions are also available from major resellers, such as Apple iBookstore, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Google Play.
