Editorial Reviews

"The soft illustrations . . . pull at readers' hearts, as the fluid lines capture this winsome little dog's energy and subsequent suffering. . Extra details to notice throughout, such as a taunting squirrel, add fun to a story that may especially stand out for those who know or own-or are-a small barker."-The Horn Book"Emerson's enthusiasm and good intentions will have readers rooting for him. A fun read-aloud for storytimes and small group sharing."-School Library Journal
