Who Wants to Be a Poodle I Don't

author/illustrator: Lauren Child

Trixie Twinkle Toes lives in the lap of luxury, with every creature comfort a manicured paw away. Adored by the glamorous Mademoiselle Bruleť, the little poodle has a maid to plump her pillows and a cook to prepare her nibbles. But Trixie isnít happy. She doesnít like the puffing and poofing and preening. She doesnít 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 ó sure to entice both spirited little readers and deeply devoted dog-lovers alike.

Lauren Child takes the lead with this wry and wooly tale of a pampered poodle who just wants to paddle in puddles ó like real dogs do.
