Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Napoleon is a dog with a vivid imagination. On rainy days he heads up to the attic and, with a few props from his treasure box, enjoys hours of mischief: he robs trains, performs intricate scientific experiments and even conjures up the most unusual Christmas tree. The brief text describes each of Napoleon's actions yet creates a sense of mystery around his every endeavor. Often a sentence spans several pages, adding a layer of suspense What will Napoleon do next? How will the sentence end?. In keeping with the simple text, the book's design is clean and unfettered, primarily white with Napoleon's antics depicted in a splash of color. Napoleon himself has the look of a flour sack-dapper and neatly defined, but a flour sack all the same. An unusual and arresting debut. Ages 3-7. Sept.
Children's Literature - Alexandria LaFaye
This quirky picture book provides a glimpse into the rainy day activities of Napoleon "a crafty little dog" who loves to play in the attic. Shaped much like a huggable pillowcase with legs, arms, the face of a dog, and a tail, Napoleon is a cute character who is the visual and narrative focus of the story. In his attic "playroom," Napoleon loves to catch rainwater in cups, dress-up, play with shadows, and conduct experiments. Not just physically active, Napoleon also takes time to read, think about things, and takes a nap as all well-rounded "people" should. The whimsical story is wonderfully supported by bright, sparse drawings with intriguing shadows. Napoleon is wonderful character that children will laugh at and probably emulate. This is a wonderful book is a great way to stir up the imagination on rainy days or any day at all.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2- "Napoleon is a crafty little dog" who plays in the attic when it rains. He digs into his treasure box, dresses up, and conducts experiments with bubbles and lightning, all in all making a "beautiful mess." Finally he curls up for a nap, listening to the sound of the rain. Sketchy drawings set on stark white pages feature a dog that looks like a stuffed white pillowcase with its corners pulled out for ears and feet, a pointy nose, and crafty eyes. Minimal details in text and illustrations create a minimal picture book. Not a necessary purchase.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
