When Old Betty tries to advise Ezra on how to survive the cold winter nights, Ezra rebuffs her concerns because he has his own private source of warmth.
"The title gives the joke away, but kids will be delighted all the same--and most will be able to appreciate the funny wind-up in which Betty, who's learned not to be so nosy, and Ezra, who's learned not to be so ill-tempered, finally become friends. Christelow's freewheeling watercolors evoke Ezra, Betty, and the doggy crew in broadly characterized relief, with pen-and-ink details adding humorous punch." Booklist, ALA
