"The children and puppy are all adorable and full of joy, and the watercolor, pencil, and print illustrations capture a sense of child- and puppylike energy and glee....charming and delightful."
* Kirkus Reviews *
"Readers are advised against hang gliding with a puppy, or letting her drive a car or wash dishes....To counter the above, essential nurturing practices-cuddles and plenty of food, water, and exercise-are featured on the final pages. Breezy illustrations in a loose, sketchy style show the puppy and her two companions-a brown-skinned boy and girl-having a blast while partaking in the illicit activities....designed to amuse." * Booklist *
"The repetition and goofy situations will make for an engaging, giggly readaloud, with a list of don'ts that blends the practical (don't walk your puppy through a football match) with the absurd (don't teach your puppy to play the tuba)." (Recommended Review) * The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *
