"Throughout this lovely story, it is clear that the boy and his parents love Norman just as he is. Simple ink drawings set against ample white space make the endearing dog come alive on paper. This title will be a surefire hit with children." School Library Journal
"This is a fresh and original take on the new-pet story that provides a gentle little paradigm shift along with its slight absurdity; the family's genial embrace of their new dog's language is both humorous . . . and offhandedly heartwarming." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
"Pet lovers will appreciate this family's lighthearted journey toward making this relationship succeed." Kirkus Reviews
"There are lessons here about patience as well as intercultural understanding but they're very lightly worn, and the casual line of the ink-and-color illustrations reminds us that this is a warm family story most of all." Horn Book
"This is a delightful and whimsically illustrated book. Recommended." Library Media Connections
