Monsieur Pamplemousse & Carbon Footprint Paperback
by Michael Bond
In an attempt to improve the lacklustre reputation of France's most prestigious culinary guide, Le Guide, in America, the director persuades Monsieur Pamplemousse to write a play for the guide's benefit, complete with a walk-on part for faithful bloodhound Pommes Frites.
