"Duggan takes the imagination’s wandering to delightfully absurd ends..." – Kirkus Reviews

"...In her illustrations, Duggan takes the imagination’s wandering to delightfully absurd ends sure to tickle toddlers and other lap readers. Her design (with large letters spelling out the word “Bark” for effect when Baxter calls out) and color choices are appealing, though the palette is somewhat subdued. The metaphor of the imagination’s voice coming from a seed is sure to appeal to adult readers, who can use the book to encourage their young ones to express themselves through their own artistic ideas, whether, like Duggan’s, these images are abstract or built on scribbles or just silly, like polka-dotted elephants and peanut butter–and-jelly mountains...

Lap readers are sure to enjoy this trip into a canine imagination—and use this journey to jump-start their own art projects."
