That's one poky little puppy

This is The Poky Little Puppy.

Per Wikipedia, it was written by Janette Sebring Lowrey, illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, and first published in 1942 as one of the first 12 books in the Simon and Schuster series Little Golden Books.

And this is a totally awesome update by the artist Tin for the upcoming Gallery 1998 show focusing on children's books:

You can see more previews from the show, including a terrific Alice in Wonderland painting by Anne-Julie Aubry here.

Relatedly, you can download an mp3 of sinister reading of the Poky Little Puppy by Rob Beschizza here.
