Another wonderful Tucker book. Great illustrations, incredibly cute story, my kids love it and I love reading (and rereading it). Like all of Leslie McGuirk's books, the creativity of this one makes the book fresh and charming and quirky. Nice gift too --

Another great Tucker book by Leslie McGuirk for babies to pre-schoolers. Tucker, a little white terrier, is an irresistible enchanting character. In Ho,Ho,Ho, Tucker, the delightful mischievous pooch romps through the snow, Christmas decorations, and a tray of hot cookies which burns his nose. After his exhausting day Tucker is anxious to sleep and dream of dancing bones. Little does he know what a remarkable surprise he is about to receive. Tucker meets a new friend who takes him on a great adventure.

Ho,Ho,Ho, Tucker is a tender hearted flight of fancy with charming illustrations. McGuirk's sheer exuberance and artistic creations will captivate any young child as well as any adult reading to them. This artistically illustrated superb treat is a "must have" Christmas book.

I have a Tucker myself but he is my 5 year old little boy. He has loved his Tucker books since day one. He just loves that there is a cute westie with his name. What makes it even it more fun to have those books is that we have a westie also.

We love this book, and it's fun to read it year after year. This is one of the few board books we will not give away, it is simply a great story and Tucker is a lovely character.

Leslie McGuirk, Ho, Ho, Ho, Tucker! (Candlewick, 2005)

Cute-enough Christmas story featuring a naughty little dog... or at least a dog who starts off as a naughty little dog and then becomes Rudolph the Red-Nosed Puppy. Okay, okay, I know, it's kind of ridiculous of me to talk about, and maybe even to expect, character consistency in a board book written for the pre-lit set, but David Shannon manages it in the Diaper David books with exactly this kind of character. Still, Davey's having a good time with it, so I'll keep reading it to him on and off before bed until it has to go back to the library. ***
