"...an enjoyable 'read-aloud' for young children'."
"Anthropomorphic animals collecting minibeasts is a fun idea, and everyone in the family of dogs is interesting and humorous...Debut author/illustrator Nici Gregory’s short, engaging sentences are well-suited to the target reader age of 2 to 6 years, and her illustrations, which are reminiscent of Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter series, are also amusing and accessible."
