“Wonderful as ever… The pacing is perfect… Seeger continues to set a high standard for picture books.  Superb.“

“This pitch-perfect addition to the much-honored annals of impetuous Dog and careful Bear’s friendship will find a ready and delighted audience… Joyfully distilled in minimal dialogue and Seeger’s trademark use of bright, bold color… Listeners, emerging readers, children have a treat in store.“

“The simple expressiveness of the friends’ mutual concern and Seeger’s inventive use of time and physical space adds to the duo’s magnetism.”
