"This sweet story with beautifully vivid illustrations demonstrates how caring for others leads to personal happiness. A winning choice for storytime and family sharing."--School Library Journal"Barclay's illustrations are jaunty and cartoonlike, reminiscent of the work of Richard Scarry, with all characters--two-legged, four-legged, or no-legged--having a fantastic time playing and chasing each other. . . Great comedy throughout, with an inspiring closer."--Booklist

"Barclay's simple, cheery ink-and-watercolor pictures emphasize the joy shared by the boy and the many pets . . . Broach's language is similarly straightforward as she underscores the responsibilities and rewards of caring for another and the expansive possibilities of family."--Publishers Weekly

"From Broach and Barclay comes a story about the affection that grows between living beings who care for one another. . . . A sweet choice for a simple story that parents and children will enjoy laughing at together."--Kirkus Reviews

"Warm and funny."--The Horn Book
