– New York Times

It’s the surreal sense of humour
which will make this book 
irresistible to young readers. 

–  Book Trust

The real treat is observing neurotic,
slit-eyed Peanut and oblivious,
wide-eyed Milo, both of whom are
completely huggable.

–  Booklist

Playful, lino-cut print illustrations
perfectly express the dogs’ personalities.
– Kirkus Review
