Product Details


Fucile provides a creative and comic look at the arrival of a new sibling. His expressive cartoon artwork is funny and endearing and the perfect complement to the spare text. A great read-aloud for any apprehensive older sibling and a fun storytime selection. Children will enjoy chiming in with the “Poor Louie” refrain.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Fucile’s background as a feature film animator is evident in the comedic pacing and polished, understated composition of scenic constructions. Droll humor, an unusual design, and an appealing main character add up to a funny addition to the canon of canines adjusting to new babies.
—Kirkus Reviews

This story of a displaced “sibling” centers on a tiny dog named Louie, the indulged pet of a young urban couple…readers of any age can appreciate its frank yet funny treatment of the physical and emotional changes of pregnancy.
—Publishers Weekly

Fucile’s buoyant cartoons are wonderful, and young readers will get a kick out of the surprising finale.
—Buffalo News
