Overview

A little white doggy take the Christmas ride of a lifetime!
All puppies dream about Christmas.
One little white dog gets especially
carried away. His name is Tucker.

Oh No! Tucker loves Christmas, with all the trimmings -- making a snowman for Santa, marking just the right tree, getting into all the boxes of decorations -- but somehow manages to burn his nose while baking cookies on Christmas Eve. When you-know-who spies that bright red nose through the window, however, Tucker makes a very special friend and takes the sleigh ride of a lifetime. Now the tuckered-out terrier is already dreaming of next year!

Featuring candy-bright colors and foil cover lettering, Leslie McGuirk's newest tale about the charismatic little terrier named Tucker will sweeten the dreams of children everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The white terrier returns in the board book Ho, Ho, Ho, Tucker! by Leslie McGuirk. "All puppies dream about Christmas. One little white dog gets especially carried away." Youngsters can watch Tucker build a snowman, select "just the right" tree and mark it his. This witty story is sure to amuse children and grown-ups alike. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Tucker is an active, precocious little white dog who is very excited because it is almost Christmas. Like a preschooler, he often gets carried away by his enthusiasm and curiosity. He builds a snowman for Santa but when he gets hungry, Tucker eats the carrot nose. He gets stuck in the box of decorations, and his nose is burned when he eats the Christmas cookies on the hot cookie sheet. When Santa sees that bright red nose he asks Tucker to help guide his sleigh alongside the reindeer. The brief text and simple illustrations are just right for toddlers and preschoolers who are just learning about the Christmas traditions. They will certainly relate to Tucker, and will laugh at his antics. The board book format allows little hands to turn the pages and follow the story through the cartoon-style illustrations. 2005, Candlewick Press, Ages 2 to 5.
