They shop for wedding clothes and select music for the reception. Tosca participates in all the festivities until Poire and Poireau leave for their honeymoon. Then something unexpected happens.
The still-to-be published book is bilingual, with a French translation by Geneviève Laverne.

The third book in the series takes place on an island in the Mediterranean where Poire, Poireau and Tosca have gone camping. On a hike, they are followed by three mysterious characters who look like Poireau but are skinnier and pointier. They are in fact wild leeks--poireaux sauvages--and they take our friends unwillingly to the mountains.
Tosca’s Island Adventure is in progress.
