A beguiling puppy story with lovable pictures by Beth Krush. Binky was born at the season when hearth fires were not needed, so found sheer delight in his first coasting on the rug before it. The cellar was more than ever undesirable when bedtime same, until he discovered a merry little fire all his own, in a box of shavings. But the fire didn't stay there, and when it singed Binky's paw, he beat a hasty retreat, though he knew the racket would rouse the family. Just what happened next-and why he ound himself a hero was never quite clear to Binky, but it makes an amusing story for he four to six year olds, while some second graders can read it to themselves.
