"When Sam asks and Mom answers, a fun picture of what Sam imagines their darling dog does when they're away from home unfolds. And from his innocent question and mom's generic answer come these brilliantly-joyful illustrations that completely capture Sam's incredible imagination that has Dudley doing all sorts of entertaining and crazy-fun people stuff while they are away." --Barbara Gruener, Corner on Character
"This book is a wonderful and visually appealing story for young children between 3 and 7 years of age. It is small on words and big on pictures. It is colourful, creative, and full of adventure; with a really sweet ending that highlights the relationship between a child and a dog." --Christa McGrath, Edwards Book Club Reviews
"Bright, cheerful cartoons contrast Sam and Dudley's days, in reality and imagination, and offer plenty of scope for extension activities. This makes a delightful storytime read, but teachers and parents will also find it a great choice for a writing or drawing prompt." --Jennifer Wharton, Jean Little Library
"Dudley's Day at Home is a funny, fetching picture book by author/storyteller Karen Kaufman Orloff that uses minimal text and maximal visual storytelling to share a day in a dog's life. Very highly recommended..." --Midwest Book Review
"In Sam's mind, Dudley is anything but ordinary. Throughout the book, Sam visualizes all of the things he thinks Dudley is doing and even includes the cat Butterball from next door! After a long day apart, Dudley and Sam reunite." --Raising Readers to Become Leaders
Dudley's Day at Home is on the Nevada Young Readers' Award list for 2024.
