Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Eastman's second beginning reader based on characters created by his father, P.D. Eastman, is as successful as the early works. The language is mildly challenging and gratifying, its lilt musical yet never sing-songy. The text easily probes parallels and opposites. When it's silly-Fred lands his plane in a palm tree, for instance-it is an enjoyable brand of silliness, rather than inanity. The characters are drawn right to the edge of sweetness but stop before they become icky. Then again, the architecture of the book is now so sound, the seams of its intentions so tight, that little oxygen makes it into the proceedings. There's fun in these pages, but it is closely monitored. And while the book positively radiates its encouragement to read, some kids-maybe those who need encouragement most-are sure to smell a rat, albeit a clean, dapper, well-behaved rat. (Early reader. 5-8)

This isn't one of my favorites, but my daughter really likes the two dogs. These board books are very sturdy, they're the perfect size for babies and toddlers. Also the pages are easy for my daughter to turn. With only a sentence or two on each page, the little ones stay interested.

We love all the Fred and Ted books - and this one is the No.1 favourite with our two year old boy. Excellent illustrations and great for teaching opposites etc. Would definitely recommend it to any under threes.
