Reviews
Throughout this exuberant kickoff to the Is This...? series, Yoon portrays an amusing dog's-eye view of Christmas season novelties--yard ornaments. . . . Employing mixed-media techniques and comic perspectives, Yoon presents the wide-eyed subject's boisterous personality with confident sketches that capture the small dog's outsize holiday energy.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Using mixed media art, Yoon takes simple text and creates a cute story about the oddities of winter through the eyes of a puppy. Comical. . . Illustrations of the recognizable winter decorations, combined with the cute brown puppy and surrounded by white space, gives a seasonal feel without being overwhelming. Short sentences are good for the young audience, and especially for reading aloud. . . A cute story about discovering a new season.
