On the surface, this is about a European trip which Bemelmans took in the early 1950s with his thirteen-year-old daughter Barbara and her digest-sized poodle, Little Bit. But Bemelmans doesn't "just take a trip" - ever: he adventures into the heart of people and places and brings them back alive in his notebooks and sketchbooks.
(Key Words: Capri, Ludwig Bemelmans, Travel, Dogs, Italy, Christmas Stories, Rome, Versailles, France).
