Read Right Now! Ho Ho Ho Tucker

  • HoHoHoTucker CandlewickSmall Listen to Ho Ho Ho Tucker – Oh, no! Tucker loves Christmas, with all the trimmings — making a snowman for Santa, marking just the right tree, getting into all the boxes of decorations — but somehow he manages to burn his nose while baking cookies on Christmas Eve. When you-know-who spies that bright red nose through the window, however, Tucker makes a very special friend and takes the sleigh ride of a lifetime. Now the tuckered-out terrier is already dreaming of next year!
