"Flisak's strong, distinctive ink drawings help define characters while underscoring the stories' gentle humor... handsome design, good paper stock, and relatively durable cover, this book is both sturdier and more attractive than its paperback designation might suggest. A pleasing addition to the series." -- Booklist
"Recommended for independent readers who might enjoy this dip into another era, to children who like older stories, such as Lois Lenski's Eleanor Estes' Harriet the Spy, or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." - Youth Services Book Review
"The classic Polish children's book series... It's all woofily exciting." -- The Times, Children's Book of the Week
