Description from Amazon:
The size of your stature is not the measure of your heart. For one tiny Dachshund, this was a mighty big lesson.
Crosby was teeny. Even for a miniature dachshund. In fact, he was the teeniest dachshund in the whole town. But his small stature and big heart made Crosby one of the best burrowers in all of the North Pole. That’s why he couldn’t wait to enter the North Pole Animal Olympics and burrow his way to a gold medal. Finally old enough to compete, Crosby goes to town to register on Dec. 23, but when he encounters lots of hecklers and bullies who make fun of his small size, Crosby loses his confidence. With his tail tucked between his legs, he burrows as fast and far away from town as he can, running smack dab into a stranded Santa and his divine destiny.
Humor and Heart!
Three cheers for the tiny dachshund who helps save Christmas! Written with humor and heart, author Michelle Adams shows how our God-given talents help us to win in unexpected ways. Children will ask for this book to be read again and again. --Amy Houts, author of 100+ books for children
