Gaspard et Lisa, more commonly known as Gaspard and Lisa, are two fictional characters appearing in a series of children's books created by wife and husband Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben.
The books center on two friends: Gaspard (black with a blue scarf) and Lisa (white with a red scarf) who go on various adventures. Gaspard, Lisa and their family members are drawn as animals, but live among humans in Paris, with the titular characters attending an ordinary school alongside human characters. Officially, Gaspard and Lisa are "neither dogs nor rabbits" but their exact species is not clear.
Gutman and Hallensleben published the first "Gaspard et Lisa" book in French in 1999. The characters became hugely popular in Japan following the introduction of Japanese translations of the books in 2001.
