Description

Meet Mirabelle and Mr. Muller-an irresistible Boston terrier and her devoted owner. They discover the joy of the simple and the pleasure of the everyday-playing catch, chasing a butterfly-in a fresh, appealing new series of board books.

Together with her owner, Mr. Muller, in his bow tie and big eyeglasses, Mirabelle fills her days with activities like playing catch with a red rubber ball or going for a late-afternoon walk and stopping at an ice cream truck. Mirabelle and Mr. Muller know what every little kid knows- the simplest thing can be endlessly fascinating and fun.

The text of each story is a dialogue between Mr. Muller, who asks questions, and Mirabelle, who replies with her actions-perfect prompts for parents to take the Mr. Muller part and the child to answer in the role of Mirabelle.
