Reviews

"Tender, funny and wise." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Invested with true emotion." --Booklist, starred review

"This almost wordless (and dialogue-free) graphic novel is by turns funny and poignant . . . it will stay with readers long after they put it down." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Sophisticatedly understated, with subtle gestural cues and colors in a minor key, yet the blossoming friendship between the dog and the robot is unmistakably joyful." --Kirkus Reviews

"This is one of those rare pieces that truly qualifies as an all-ages graphic novel, with a wordless story (save for the occasional bits of signage, printed ephemera, and free-floating sound effects and exclamations) packed with enough droll events to engage primary-schoolers, and bittersweet observations on the mutable nature of friendships best understood by those who've been around long enough to win some and lose some." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Recommended Book

"Emotional experiences are shared without a word in this graphic novel that elicits laughter, tears, and a realization of the complexity of friendships." --NCTE Notable Book in the Language Arts Review
