A Christmas lesson from a vocal pup about believing in yourself!
Owww-ooo, something is waking up every critter in the Louisiana swamp. It’s Randolph, the loud-mouthed coon dog! Who knew that a pup so small could howl so big? He is so loud he might even scare Santa away! Poor Randolph hides deep in the swamp where he hopes no one will hear him. He never imagined that his late night baying would actually save the day as he leads a new friend out of the swamp in this delightfully original holiday tale with a familiar feel. Complete with a new version of the classic Christmas song about a certain reindeer who was also a little bit different, this adorable holiday adventure is sure to have readers of all ages howling with delight!
