“The pace of the page turns gently slows down as this good dog heads to his dreams. Goodnight, Good Dog. Sure to be shelved next to Goodnight, Moon. It deserves that rarefied spot.”  KIRKUS, starred review
“Ray, who prose was so captivating in Stars, again proves herself a gifted writer, capable of highly distilled poetic prose that's beautifully accessible and allusive. Malone's (Hug Hug!) bright acrylics, simple shapes, and minimalist detailing (two highly expressive dots stand in for the dog's eyes) are a terrific match; her canine hero is endearingly eager and trying to behave, yet certain that the world revolves around him.”  PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
