This book focuses on the lives of Paul Chutkow, his family, and their humble but spunky dog Zelda.Anyone who has owned a dog knows what a blessing and pain they can be, and Mr. Chutkow has both of those qualities. It's sort of an animalized version of Cinderella… Zelda shows up at Mr. Chutkow's doorstep begging for food and just when he is about to turn her away she digs herself a deep hole inside his heart.This story is sweet and humorous and a little sad towards the end but is definitely a g [...]

If you have ever tasted French macaroons you will not forget their delicate form and taste. They seems so unsubstantial, light, fluffy, little nothings, yet tremendous amount of precise and careful work goes into them. It's not a desert you can whip up on a whim. To meZelda, The Queen of Parisis such a delightful and tasty read comparable to a beautiful macaroon. It's a slight and easy read, that reads in one sitting, fluffy and light on the surface, yet it came about out of a very specific stat [...]

This book was not what I thought it would be and it was at the same time I felt like Zelda was only an accessory in the story just to allow the author to write about himself. I loved when Zelda was the star of the book but when it was only about Paul it was boring to me. The ending was hard to read for me since I lost my cat earlier this week.

a feel good book. Paul and his wife live in India. One day they stumble across a street dog. She eats out of garbage cans, is full of worms and just full of love. They adopt her, take care of her and in the process, have their lives changed forever.Zelda lives in India, travels with them when they move to Paris, and finally settles in Sonoma, Ca. She is spoiled rotten, loved to pieces and treated like a member of the family. As I read how they cooked her food for her, I remembered my former dog, [...]

This is a great book. I found it interesting to read about life in India. If you're an animal lover I recommend this book to you.

Paul Chutkow was an AP reporter living in India in the late 1970s when against the advice of everyone they knew, he and his wife adopted Zelda, a street dog who came begging at their door every morning for food. Zelda remained part of their family for the next 14 years, in India, Paris, and finally Napa Valley, California. She was a sweet and lucky little dog, beloved by everyone who met her (although she did have to rescue a cache of rare and valuable wines for her Parisian neighbors before the [...]

A writer's memoir of fourteen years spent mostly in Indian and France--wrapped around the story of his adoption by an Indian pi dog. Mr Chutkow has of gift for sharing his enjoyment of life with the people he knows and loves, including Zelda. If anyone has shared a special relationship with a personable dog, this book will remind you of the good times.

Enjoyed this book very much. So admired the pluck of this little dog and how she really wormed her way into the very psychology of the author. Special dogs just do that. Recommended for anyone who has had a special dog.

I am a sucker for animals and travel and this book had both! Such a cute dog story but more a story about the life this American family lived in other countries. Very quick read. I read it in one sitting. I would recommend it to all dog lovers.

A sweet, short, fun read.

This little book is a gem--yet another proof that good things come in small packages. There are lovable characters and of course a wonderful dog, Zelda.

Loved, loved, loved! Zelda's spirit is remarkable, she's now right up there with Polar Bear from the Amory books.

Finished it on the plane, last night. Loved it! :)

An absolutely delightful read.

The book was enjoyable and a fast read. Paul Chutkow tells an interesting story. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars was because I found the cover title and inside blurb to be a bit misleadingThe book did feature Zelda the dog but an equal amount of print was devoted to Mr. Chutkow's family and professional life. Overall, it was a very good book but I expected a bit more of a focus on the dog.

This was good. (Auto?)Biographical. Follows the author and his family on their adventures in India, Paris, and California with many of the stories centring around the family dog Zelda, a 'Pi' street dog he and his wife rescued in India.

A delightful story, easy reading. Way to go Paul!

Cute story. Rags to riches.
