As elderly Lily Laceby dozes by the fire, her dog, Butch Aggie, becomes alarmed by strange noises outside. Finally awakened by Butch Aggie's growls and barks, Lily finds a lovely surprise waiting for her. The language, pacing, tension, and sparks of excitement are absolutely at one with the artwork. --"The Horn Book"
