Product Details


The watercolor pictures are done in soft colors and whimsical line…Younger children may also relate to Sad the dog’s being yelled at for activities that are perfectly natural to him.
—Kirkus Reviews

The layout is balanced, and the book will be easy to use in a storytime setting. A sweet, sentimental story and a pleasing supplemental purchase.
—School Library Journal

This picture book from Australia is a vivid reminder of how much animals learn from humans as well as what humans can learn from animals. Sad is, indeed, very Lucky once the right person befriends him. Those animal “owners” who behave irresponsibly, never allowing their dogs to play or even deserting them need to read this book as a reminder that animals matter and have feelings.
—Literacy Daily

A satisfying story.
—The New York Times
