The Poky Little Puppy and the Patchwork Blanket (Little Golden Book) (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
The adorable story about the poky little puppy and his beloved blankie is now back in print for a new generation!
The poky little puppy loves his blanket so much that he takes it outside, even though he's not supposed to. But too much "roly-poly, pell-mell, tumble-bumble" under fences and through bushes soon reduces his bright red blanket to shreds. Poor Poky! Luckily, his four brothers and sisters each give up parts of their own blankets for Poky's mother to sew into a beautiful patchwork blanket that will warm Poky inside and out! This book features all the charm of the original Poky, star of the bestselling picture book of all time, The Poky Little Puppy.
