Tony Tuso Faber began her modeling career at age 13 and went on to win over seventeen beauty pageant titles, including Miss California in the Miss World Contest. After graduating from college and with the money earned through modeling and pageant wins, she purchased a struggling magazine called "Orange County/Newport Life" and turned into "Orange Coast Magazine," the largest magazine in Orange County. About two years ago, she turned her love of poodles into authoring "The Poodle Tales" series that has extended beyond publishing into a children's website with activities and games, poodle toys and products, videos, and a soon-to-be-released cartoon feature. In addition, Tony develops real estate, designs clothing, and enjoys gourmet cooking. She and her husband, Bruce, live in Orange County with their standard poodles (of course!) names London, Deja Vu, and Dante.

I was so honored to be given the chance to review this amazing children's book! What a cute story! The colors and illustrations are absolutely adorable. The colors are vibrant and make the illustrations really stand out. 

I read the story to my 6 year old son and he absolutely loves it. We have read it several nights in a row. His favorite part of the book is the page that shows all the puppies with their names on their food bowls. His favorite name was Rock Star!! Mine was Ziggy!!

The story had so much energy to it and kept my son's attention the whole time. He couldnt wait for me to turn the page to see where the missing puppy was. I just absolutely loved it! I will definitely be looking for future books from this author! 

Favorite Quote:
"I gave these pups a nickname, for short I called them Poos,
A dainty name to match their size, a perfect name to choose!"

I want to say a HUGE Thank You to Kelley & Hall Publicity for sending me a copy of this phenomenal children's book!!!
