Perritos en Invierno/ A Winter's Tail (Martha Speaks)by Susan Meddaugh
Synopses & Reviews
Martha and friends must save Skits after he slides onto thin ice during a snow-day hockey game.
Skits is terrified of hockey pucks, but why? Helen recounts the unforgettable snowday hockey game at the root of his fear. Back when Skits was just a pup, he was eager to participate in an outdoor hockey game. But when his enthusiasm got the better of him, he chased a puck straight past the goal line and onto thin ice! Its a good thing that good dog Martha was there to race to the rescue!
Includes a wintry crossword puzzle.
