Reviews

"It's "The Walking Dead "with dogs. It's funny, action packed, and now my dogs know how to survive the apocalypse. I look forward to reading Brownie and Apollo's further adventures!" --Dan Santat, author of "The Adventures of Beekle: An Unimaginary Friend""" "Uninhibitedly wacky . . . A potent combination of unhinged energy and poignant sentiment." --"Publishers Weekly"

The simple black and white illustrations are effective for the tone and pace of the story, often adding additional humor to situations. One of the best recommendations you can give a young reader is 'it's really funny.' This book is really funny. Spread the word.--100 Scope Notes blog

Uninhibitedly wacky . . . A potent combination of unhinged energy and poignant sentiment. "Publishers Weekly"

[A] postapocalyptic story that younger readers can enjoy without seeing too much potentially scary mayhem. "Booklist"

This is typical Proimos (Proimoi?) in its affable weirdness and loopy, slightly edgy cartoonish artwork . . . the black and white illustrations have a countercultural feel that adds extra appeal. The dogs' dialogue is snappy, with fine comic contrast . . . . The action transpires in brief demarcated scenes, making this loopy story perfect for reluctant readers who need frequent breaks.
