Product Description

It’s Groundhog vs. Poodle in this adorable Groundhog Day Tale

This Groundhog Day Book is truly one the entire family can enjoy! When Mrs. Flout, loving but unaware owner of the Poodle Posse decides she would like to get a read on the forecast before planting her new garden, she decides a trip to see the weather-predicting groundhog is in order. When she piles her poodles into the car, she doesn’t have a clue that they are in for some adventures of their own.

Reaching their location, Mrs. Flout takes off their leashes for a bit and before long, a poodle is missing! Trouble ensues as three of the four siblings attempt to find the lost brother (aka the adventurous one). When nothing turns up, the poodles solicit the help of a police dog. Having no idea of his own, they all ask for the help of a policeman. He decides to gather the entire posse and a snowmobile and set out on their own journey. But when a rope and someone’s blanket turn up next to the groundhog’s sleeping quarters, both the groundhog and poodle are not there. Where would one poodle who loves to burrow be found? Find out for yourself in this adorable Groundhog Day Book.

Activities in the back of the book include a picture search, word search and mini board game.
