The New York Times New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children’s Books Award (2022)
A dog has an important job to do, especially if his human is a writer. Without a dog by his side, the writer would forget to eat. He’d never get out of his pajamas, and he’d probably stare at the computer all day long. But even the best French bulldog can’t do everything. Maybe this perfect pair needs someone new in their lives…
Illustrated in warm, earthy tones, this witty story reflects the ways dogs change our lives for the better. Our canine friends can make—and find—the best companions.
Booklist (starred review)
“A waggish tale for those who understand dogs (or think they do).”
School Library Journal
“While this is not an essential purchase, it may suit the shelf with titles on the pandemic; it does touch on some of the needs of those still working from home, from a more childlike point of view.”
