A picture book by Caroline Adderson, illustrated by Alice Carter.

Pierre and Paul are back for another adventure! Pierre speaks French and Paul speaks English, but that doesn't stop them from being friends and exploring together. Today is garbage day, so the duo sets out to find hidden treasures in the trash. Treasure map in hand, they encounter poisonous swamps, dark forests, a dragon, and even a tsunami! (Or maybe just a garbage truck driving through a puddle.)

When the tsunami sweeps away their treasure map, they think all is lost — until they finally find a treasure lying out in plain sight.

Told half in French and half in English, this second book in the Pierre & Paul series uses simple phrases and clues in the illustrations to make the story accessible to readers in both languages. Full of imagination and playful illustrations, this vocabulary-learning tool is an engaging story of friendship.

Pierre & Paul: Dragon! is the latest children's book in the series by author Caroline Adderson. Told in both English and French, the book features easy-to-read language and quirky illustrations to tell a story to two friends on their latest adventure, this time on the hunt for treasure in the trash.
