About the series and Joan Becker Cope

"The Animals Know It's Christmas" was the first Punkie book and was a limited edition with only a small number of books printed back in 1997. It is included in 'The Holiday "Tails"' in its entirety with six original illustrations plus eleven new ones.

Joan Becker Cope, the author and illustrator, continues to be inspired by her Pekingese, Pudge and Muff, who are in heaven, and by Tricki Wu and Qiu Qiu (pronounced Cho Cho) Tung. In fact, Qiu Qiu came into the author's life about a year after the previous Punkie book was published. Joan has also painted seascapes and has sold them out of a gallery in Nags Head, North Carolina and in Key West, Florida.

The author is always coming up with ideas for more stories about Punkie and will continue on with the series. If you wish to contact her about her books you may email her at punkpeke@atel.net or write her at Palm Tree Publishing, 3316 Keichtee Drive, Richmond, VA 23225.
