Reviews

Anyone who lets their dogs sleep on the bed will find this tale doggone funny.--Kirkus Reviews The exuberant, rhyming text delights the ear as the hilarious illustrations engage the eye in this kid- and dog-friendly tale.--School Library Journal Rousing rhymes and frequent refrains provide continuous, peppy entertainment, and the occasional altered rhythms will keep readers and listeners on their toes. The colorful, chaotic illustrations are filled with witty elements.--Booklist Bluemle's exuberant but tightly constructed verses bound across the page and Anne Wilsdorf's playful illustrations provide the ideal compliment.--The Franklin Journal (Portland, ME) Spirited story with humorous illustrations...rollicking, rhyming romp...Dog owners will recognize the familiar shenanigans pets engage in at bedtime., --Pets Quarterly The watercolor illustrations bubble over with the frenzied energy of dogs finding their place of comfort at bedtime.--California Kids! This rollicking, rhyming romp will certainly elicit a few chuckles as you see how bent on disrupting story time these pooches can be.--Aptos Times


A cheery family with two young children and six dogs of varying breeds and sizes tries to bed down for the night in this comical story about cuddling up with canine companions. The rollicking, rhyming text uses some dandy rhymes (prowl, growl, howl) and invented words (rhyming rodeo and heave-ho with to-and-fro-deo and pill-e-ow ) as well as exuberant descriptions and details of the dogs' antics. After storytime, the whole family falls asleep in the parents' big bed, and as the night progresses, the dogs take up more and more room until the humans are squeezed out of bed and into the neighboring armchair. Reorganization produces better sleeping conditions for everyone, with four dogs sleeping with the parents, one dog in each child's bed and everyone asleep and happy by the final pages. Dog lovers will chuckle over the antics of the canines, each with a bouncy individual personality conveyed through Wilsdorf's characteristically energetic and amusing watercolor illustrations. Anyone who lets their dogs sleep on the bed will find this tale doggone funny. (Picture book. 3-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
