One of the poodles can’t wait to meet the little guy, so adventures begin.

The fourth member of the posse is a leaping, jumping bundle of fur who loves nothing better than to cuddle up and burrow under blankets and piles of laundry. So what better fun than meeting up with another burrowing fellow during the bleak midwinter?

Adventure ensues when this member of the posse goes missing in this Groundhog Day book Trouble Down Under. And their mom learns an important lesson about patience along the way.

Grab your camera and your calendar and join the Poodle Posse as the adventures continue on Groundhog Day. Will it be another bout of winter? An early spring? Will the groundhog see his shadow? Or will the event be clouded by some zany poodle antics?

Find out in Trouble Down Under; and check out some fun activities at the back of the book that will make midwinter feel a whole lot warmer. Transitional reader for grades 1+, including activity section.

The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic. The Earth was absolutely round. I believe I never knew what the word round meant until I saw Earth from space.


For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.


It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
