Take another look at the sentence:

Poking his head through the unzipped top, Jodi’s book bag was Freddy the Chihuahua’s taxi.

Poking his head through the unzipped top, a participle phrase, comes right before book bag, an illogical target. The dog, not the book bag, has a head! [Jodi's, a possessive noun, functions as an adjective describing book bag.]
