HODIE by Katharine & Bernard Garbutt

Hodie is a French poodle who once lived in a city apartment but who now lives on a farm. At first the farmer thinks Hodie is lazy and unwilling to work because of his natural, buoyant happiness and light-hearted friendliness for all the other animals, but Hodie, in his own way and in his own time, proves that he wants to be useful. Hodie is a most lovable personality, with his comic, fancy out, and the pictures of him, by Bernard Garbutt, will endear him to children, for his capers are most expressive. Pink and green add a touch of spring liveliness to the black and whites.
