Reviews

A family lovingly adopts a dog with much preparation in this cheerful tale that's full of helpful hints for aspiring dog owners...Three cheers for Sophie! Perfect fuel for dog lovers' fires.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The illustrations, rendered in mixed media, are colorful and fun, with an added touch of whimsy...Ideal as a conversation starter for families contemplating adopting a dog, this will also serve as a handbook for the very young in the early stages of welcoming a furry addition to the family.
--School Library Journal

Rubbino's speedy and informal watercolors move smoothly from focused vignettes to wide-open park spaces, and spotted Sophie beams with scruffy cheer. Wannabe pet owners will particularly appreciate the vicarious experience, and it will be a good step up to Calmenson's May I Pet Your Dog?
