Biografia breu
Janette Sebring Lowrey was born in Orange, a town in the southeast corner of Texas. She wrote dozens of books for children and young readers from the 1930s through the 1970s. She's best-known for The Poky Little Puppy (1942), the best selling children's book of all time, with sales of more than 15 million. The Poky Little Puppy was one of the original 12 classic Little Golden Books. Another famous children's book was Margaret (1950) about an orphan girl who moves to live with an uncle in East Texas.

In 1958, Disney turned the book into a five-part television movie series called "Annette," showcasing Annette Funicello.

When my kids are slow, I refer to them as "My Pokey Little Puppies."

So this is a terrible story. 5 puppies keep sneaking out of their yard, and one is really poky (hence the name). The 4 faster puppies get caught disobeying their mother and don't get dessert, while the Poky Puppy sneaks in and eats it all (?) after everyone goes to bed. First of all, dog mom is obviously a terrible mother what with letting her puppies wander around with no supervision. Secondly, it seems weird to reward the slow one for getting home last. Thirdly, I don't ever punish/reward my kid with food so I find the whole "bed without dessert" thing obnoxious.
We bought this in a boxed set and I kind of wish we hadn't. I read about half the text, so that the story becomes a heartwarming tale of 5 puppies who go on walks and eat dessert before bed. The End!
