Lauren Child takes the lead with this wry and wooly tale of a pampered poodle who just wants to paddle in puddles like REAL dogs do.
Trixie Twinkle Toes lives in the lap of luxury, with every creature comfort a manicured paw away. Adored by the glamorous Mademoiselle Brulee, the little poodle has a maid to plump her pillows and a cook to prepare her nibbles. But Trixie isn t happy. She doesn t like the puffing and poofing and preening. She doesn t like being dressed in little pink ponchos. She wants to be dazzlingly dangerous and daring. She wants to step in puddles! With a witty text that scampers across the pages and hilarious mixed-media illustrations, Lauren Child offers a one-ofa-kind treat sure to entice both spirited little readers and deeply devoted dog-lovers alike.
