AWARDS & REVIEWS

Reviews

"Slavin’s polished paintings of Stanley’s antics and Bailey’s confident, breezy story add up to a triumphant cautionary tale that will leave both adults and kid laughing."

Kirkus Reviews, 01/02/2003

"This is first-class entertainment all the way, with a last line - “If you don’t believe me, ask your dog” - that’s cheekiness itself."

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, 01/02/2003

"This humorous story makes an ideal read-aloud. Dog lovers and party animals alike will howl with delight."

School Library Journal, 01/07/2003

"This is a funny, delightful book ... even if you're not a fan of real dogs, this book is a riot."

Quill & Quire Starred Review, 01/01/2003
