Crummel, Susan Stevens and Dorothy Donahue. (2004). City dog, country dog. New York: Marshall Cavendish.

A spin on the classic Aesop fable—spiced with French phrases, Impressionist art, and canine style
Two French dogs, Henri and Vincent, meet at art school and become good friends despite their differences. 

I liked the illustrations and spent more time looking at the details on each page than I did the story line. If read aloud to a class, you would definitely need to brush up on your French accent and phrases so that you wouldn't stumble over them as your read. I have several students who enjoy this book and have asked for it as it they like the simple story about two friends who just happen to be dogs.
