Praise

Starred review, School Library Journal, January 1, 2011:
“This follow up to A Curious Collection of Cats (Tricycle, 2009) is dazzling indeed … a delight for kids, their adults, and maybe even their beloved canine companions.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2010:
“34 vividly illustrated concrete poems. Franco delves into her arsenal with cinquain, haiku, rhymed and free verse, as Wertz employs boldly colored multimedia collage”

Review, Booklist, December 15, 2010:
“… volume of concrete poems filled with playful action. Both silly and on-target, the slapstick rhymes are good choices for family sharing.”

Review, Horn Book Magazine, January/February 2011:
“The combination of the funny poems and the goofy dogs will make this a great gift book and a sneaky way to inject a little poetry into someone’s life.”

Review, Publishers Weekly, November 29, 2010:
“Franco and Wertz persuasively convey canine behavior … as well as the trials and treasured moments familiar to many owners. Dog lovers won’t want to miss this clever, jubilant gem.”
