|The Poky Little Puppy Golden Book|
As look around the web, I realize that this little book is extremely well-known. Many sites include this same phrase:
One of the original 12 Little Golden Books published in 1942, The Poky Little Puppy has sold nearly 15 million copies since 1942, making it one of the most popular children’s books of all time. Now this curious little puppy is ready to win the hearts and minds of a new generation of kids...It written by Janette Sebring Lowrey and illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren.
|"Don't Ever Dig Holes Under this Fence"|
from The Poky Little Puppy
My memory of parts of the book runs deep:
"Now where in the world is that poky little puppy?" they wondered. For he certainly wasn't on top of the hill....
And down they went to see, roly-poly, pell-mell, tumble-bumble, till they came to the green grass...
"So you're the little puppies who dig holes under fences!" she said. "No rise pudding tonight!" And she made them go straight to bed."
