Praise

NYTimes.com, August 17, 2011:
“[A] delightful example of the drama and emotion that a nearly wordless book can convey…the laughter of young readers will doubtlessly round out the narrative.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, April 18, 2011:

“Crum uses only the title word (if you don’t count a single “Woof?”), but the various inflections speak volumes about the comic dynamics of sharing…[Barton’s] dizzyingly expressive digitized pencil sketches seem to be everywhere at once continually reframing the action to make sure readers savor every gleefully anarchic moment.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2011:
“The capricious artwork has touches of Helen Oxenbury and Marla Frazee’s babies, smudgy, digitized pencil sketches full of movement and joy…This charming, animated episode will elicit giggles and demands of ‘read it again!‘”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, June 2011:
“The two youngsters are simply adorable, and their alternating surprised and gleeful expressions, as well as those of their canine accomplice, are priceless. In a final scene, the women reclaim the water-soaked children in a room now much the worse for wear. Youngsters will eagerly participate in repeated tellings of this watery escapade.”
