Description

EVERYONE KNOWS THE STORY of the poky little puppy, who had to go to bed without any strawberry shortcake. This book, which was one of the original 12 Little Golden Books that launched in October 1942, is now available in an upscale, 52-page edition that features all of the artwork that was later cut when World War II era paper rationing took its toll. It's the perfect way to honor Little Golden Books' 65th anniversary - and the bestselling picture book of all time.
