Once Upon



                                            Chrysa Smith   Illustrated by:  Pat Achilles



      Who doesn’t like a cute puppy dog? ‘Once Upon a Poodle’ is a children’s picture book written by Chrysa Smith and drawn by Pat Achilles. It is the Prequel of the award winning Poodle Posse series This is the story of a cute poodle by the name of Woody and his search for a friend to play with every day, even though he does love his master, but she cannot play the games he likes most not too well.  Woody makes several new friends when he goes out the doggie door, but they somehow are not quite right to take home.
LPoodle Posseike the rest of the Adventure of the Poodle Posse series The pictures were bright, cheerful and colorful using the primary colors and making the story move from page to page.  The characters that the illustrator drew made them all cute and cuddly and made the story fun to ‘read’ just through the pictures.  ‘Once Upon a Poodle’ when used in an early childhood or even a primary grade classroom teachers can teach about what makes a friend and friendship in general.  The reader will even sense the various emotions from the repetition of looking out the window to finding out which animals don’t fit and then finding success.
My favorite pictures were the ones on page one with the letter to readers that express love and comfort from the book. The next ones were on pages four and five when his mom would play his games the best she could, and in general all the pictures of the action pictures throughout this picture book solving his problem.
When Miniature Poodle Woody faces the same-old playtime with his human mom, who is none too good at dog games, he begins a search for a new playmate, perhaps even a brother. After several attempts, their household turns to chaos as nuts are cracked, feathers fly and gardens are harvested. But persistent Woody keeps searching and doesn’t give up until the right one comes along. Who will it be? Find out in Once upon a Poodle, a prequel picture book to the award-winning series: The Adventures of the Poodle Posse.
