Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Spectacular design, imaginative descriptions, and a whole lotta love fill the pages of this fresh tale. One young boy states his immense affection and admiration for his very big, bouncy, slobbery dog. Each layout introduces a new set of adjectives with matching illustrations. "A big, red, happy, muddy smart dog!" exclaims one page, showing the brainy canine covered in mud and reading a stack of books that include Sherlock Bones and My Life as a Boy. Each adjective appears in a different color and font, providing younger readers with a visual aid to the many wondrous traits of this fantastic pooch. The young boy ends his praise with his own unfinished drawing of himself and his furry friend.

The unique format of the book, with tall and narrow pages, allows every image and word to shine through. The stark white background also provides a clean canvas for these airbrushed images. All text is printed in bold type, adding balance to the images and giving youngsters a clear view of each word. Exclamation points abound, emphasizing how proud the boy is of the muddy mutt.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-From his initial "I've got a dog.-A big red dog" a child adds to the description of his Clifford-like pup, enhancing it with words such as "bouncy," "muddy," "slobbery," and "sneaky." His expressions of love and enthusiasm for his mischievous pet are heightened by the variety of font sizes and colors used throughout the book. Gorton's simple airbrushed acrylics work perfectly with the text, giving visual examples of the adjectives. The story can be used in the classroom with beginning readers or as an early lesson in descriptive language. It will also be enjoyed by younger children.-Susan Marie Pitard, formerly at Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
With waggy enthusiasm, one detail at a time, a lad presents his "big, red, happy, muddy, smart, bouncy, slobbery, sneaky, stinky" canine companion. Walton's (How Can You Dance) cumulating, emphatic text is printed in brightly colored, suitably bold type. Gorton's (My Two Hands/My Two Feet) tidy little patches of mud and drops of slobber don't quite convey the reality, but her boy and dog, posed against minimal or no backgrounds, are radiant with energy and affection. The format—tall, skinny, stiffly paged—mimics a photo album, and the endpapers are covered with adjectives, including a couple that don't make it into the list inside. " ‘Isn't he a great dog!' " the child gushes at the end, presenting a gallery of his own pictures. Indubitably—though cat lovers and the unnecessarily fastidious may prefer the eponymous feline of Liz Graham-Yooll's Timothy Tib.
