“Beguiling… If Seeger keeps these coming (and readers will hope she does), DOG AND BEAR are likely to join the rarefied ranks of FROG AND TOAD, and GEORGE AND MARTHA.”

starred review/Horn Book
“File this entry near FROG AND TOADPOOH AND PIGLET, and GEORGE AND MARTHA; then be prepared to read it again and again.”

“Impulsive Dog and deliberate Bear are perfect foils.”
