Lumpito And The Painter From Spain

Lumpito and the Painter from Spain Book Cover Lump and Big Dog do not get along.  When Lump gets the opportunity to get a break from Big Dog, he eagerly tags along on a trip to France with his master David.  At the villa in France, Lump meets the famous painter, Pablo Picasso, and new playmates, Yan the dog and Esmeralda the goat. Picasso is positively enchanted with Lump, whom he calls Lumpito, the two become soulmates, and Lumpito refuses to leave.  This charmingly illustrated book is based on the true story of Picasso’s love for a dachshund named Lumptio who became the subject of countless paintings and drawings. cc
