Reviews

Fucile provides a creative and comic look at the arrival of a new sibling. His expressive cartoon artwork is funny and endearing and the perfect complement to the spare text. A great read-aloud for any apprehensive older sibling and a fun storytime selection. Children will enjoy chiming in with the "Poor Louie" refrain.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Fucile's background as a feature film animator is evident in the comedic pacing and polished, understated composition of scenic constructions. Droll humor, an unusual design, and an appealing main character add up to a funny addition to the canon of canines adjusting to new babies.
--Kirkus Reviews

This story of a displaced "sibling" centers on a tiny dog named Louie, the indulged pet of a young urban couple...readers of any age can appreciate its frank yet funny treatment of the physical and emotional changes of pregnancy.
--Publishers Weekly

Fucile's buoyant cartoons are wonderful, and young readers will get a kick out of the surprising finale.
