When I was a little girl I remember reading many of the Golden Book series and The Poky Little Puppy was probably one of my most favourite books in the series, so when I discovered this book I was absolutely ecstatic to discover it.
This book was a sweet little story featuring The Poky Little Puppy demonstrating the real spirit of Christmas. We see the cheeky antics of The Poky Little Puppy in that he was easily distracted by things going on around him and then lagging behind the rest of the group because of it. The distraction for Poky this time was a little skunk, called Herman, who was the victim of humans cutting down a Christmas tree which fell onto Herman’s home, a hollow log. Poky found an old rubber boot which he gave to Herman as an alternative home to his now smashed log.
This is a wonderful story for everybody, old and young alike.
