Praise For Dogs

"As simple as its title and clever from the start...Gravett saves the most entertaining image for last, when the narrator's identity is revealed in a kid-pleasing finale."--Publishers Weekly



"A wonderfully warmhearted ode to four-legged friends."--Booklist



"A pleasingly goofy cast of characters that begs the question, is there any kind of dog this narrator does not like? The last spread reveals the identity of the narrator--which, in classic Gravett fashion, will make readers chuckle and then rethink the entire book that preceded it."--Kirkus Reviews



"The pacing of the simple text and scale of the drawings lend this title equally well to preschool storyimes, lap-sharing, and emerging-reader fans of Biscuit and Dog and Bear. A winner."--School Library Jorunal
