Fanny the Flying French Bulldog
Illustrated by Nikita Polayansky.
Fanny is a French bulldog with big ears and an even bigger heart. She loves her human dad but she misses her mother. When her longing leaves her ears flapping she finds herself in the skies and on an adventure, over San Francisco and in a fanciful circus, and hopefully all the way to her mother—and home again. A heartwarming tale about family and home—and soaring with love—Fanny the Flying French Bulldog will charm children, adults, and pups, too. The first in a Fanny series with a strong lead character, akin to the lovable pup "Henley" (of Glitterati Incorporated fame), this book is festooned with gorgeous original illustrations by illustrator Nikita Polyansky (Sleeping Beauty) and a deluxe presentation in four-color with a ribbon marker and two gatefolds.
About the Author:
Nelson Bloncourt was inspired to write this book by the real Fanny. He says, "Every person's dog is the best and the most special. But Fanny had been so exposed to the public in San Francisco, that hundreds of people knew her by name. That made her soar! She was greatly loved." Nelson has worked as a fashion stylist, a photography agent and coauthor (Visions of Angels, S Editions, 1998), and is currently a creative director and consultant. This is his first picture book. He lives in the hills of San Francisco.
