Check out my The Poky Little Puppy book summary and review that I created to help you understand the basics of this great book. The Pokmon Little Poppy is a children's book written by Janet Sebring Lore and illustrated by Gustaf Tengren.

 It was first published in 1942 as one of the first twelve books in the Little Golden Books of the Simon & Schuster series. Copyright was renewed in October 1969.

Pok Little Poppy is a story about five puppies of an undefined breed. As of 2001, The Pokmon Little Poppy was the single best-selling hardcover children's book of all time in the United States, selling nearly 15 million copies.

Although the book surpassed many other famous books, such as Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, Lori herself (who also wrote stories about children in her home state of Texas) remained in relative obscurity until her death.

The Poky Little Puppy book summary :

Instead of following his siblings when they are all hiding to play (although their mother warns them to go out and play; but never dig a hole under the fence so they can go to another yard), Tytler retreats to observe the character. . In the beginning his freedom was rewarded.

The puppies dug a hole under the fence to escape from their backyard (instead of playing in their own backyard), but only the Pok Little Poppy siblings were caught. Pok Little Puppy avoids punishment because his mother is exploring while he scolds his siblings and he comes home alone after everyone is asleep.

The little puppy then eats the rice pudding that the mother had planned to give to all the puppies but was stopped due to the incident of digging the fence. Not knowing he was going to be punished, he secretly ate rice pudding and crawled into bed as happy as Lark.

This pattern then repeats itself, with chocolate custard for dessert instead of just rice pudding. Again, Pok Little Poppy avoids punishment while everyone else is asleep. Eaten chocolate custard stuck due to fence digging incident. Again, knowing that he would not be punished, he secretly ate chocolate custard as well, and again crawled into bed as happy as Lark.

Only at the end of the book does fate catch up with Pokিmon Little Poppy. When the puppies are sent to bed for the third time without dessert (this time being strawberry shortcakes), they wait until they think their mother is asleep, then fall off the bed and fill the hole dug under the fence.

Mom sees them do it and tells them to come eat a strawberry shortcake. The Pok Little Puppy is not too late to get any strawberry shortcake, but is forced to push between the fence boards once the hole is filled. Then when she sees her four siblings licking the last piece from their sister-in-law (the last piece from the shortcake), her mother notes her sympathy for Pok mon's behavior.

She says to him, "My dear! What a pity! You are so thin! Now the strawberry shortcake is all over!". The book ends with Pok mon Little Poppy going to bed without a bite from a shortcake and feeling “too sorry for herself”.

There is a sign outside the next day (where the puppies fall with Pok পmon Little Poppy). As it reads, the sign says "No sweets ...! ... unless the puppies dig a hole under this fence!"
