If readers aren’t loving Ted by now, they have no heart. … The illustrations, with their muted color scheme, nicely complement the deadpan humor of the text and are sprinkled with details that young readers may enjoy discovering. … This humorous story with its lovable protagonist is a keeper.
—Kirkus Reviews

Rudge finds low-key comedy in a dog’s search to be noticed. … Gentle colors with squiggly, penciled-in details give each page tranquil charm: fancy hairstyles, flower petals, flags, and ferns fill the spreads like wallpaper patterns. It’s a quiet, small-scale story with an atmosphere that’s free of suspense.
—Publishers Weekly

Illustrations done in pen, ink, and collage enhance this charming story.
—School Library Journal

Joyful… Ted’s predicament is analogous to that of a child who, for all his good qualities, simply does not stand out. … Ms. Rudge’s color-pencil and collage illustrations deliver Ted into an unusual household where, for once, he cannot but stand out.
—The Wall Street Journal
