Poodlena is a star. Every day she powders and pinks herself to perfection. And every day she parades through the park, keeping clean and perfect. One day, after a heavy rain, another dog knocks poor Poodlena right off the path and into a giant mud puddle. The mud is dirty and icky. . . and so much fun! Now Poodlena still primps and pinks herself close to perfect-but she always saves time for playing with friends, too!

E. B. McHenry is a graphic designer living near Oakland, California. This is her first book.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 1. Poodlena looks like cotton candy. She powders and fluffs and preens, and her pompadour is a pink mountain of hair that must be sprayed with regularity. Each day, Poodlena leaves her high-rise apartment and is walked through city traffic to the park where there's "a wild dog park scene"--she's far too well groomed to take part. But one day as Poodlena heads out for her constitutional, she's knocked into the mud by a dog chasing a ball. Though she's indignant at first (and first-time dirty), she comes to realize that a little less glamour will make it easier for her to romp with other canines. The story is slight. The fun comes from the illustrations, slathered in pinks and golds, which have a retro feel and conjure up visions of a 1950s New York. A human primps and walks Poodlena, but the dog is clearly in charge, and kids will have a laugh over how she loves being tweezed and teased to a fare-thee-well, captured quite delightfully in the full spreads and vignettes.
