"The titular pooch, gray and shaggy with small, friendly eyes, has reached an advanced age.... The girl starts walking and everything changes: she becomes the dog’s greatest devotee, and even loves rolling down a hill as much as he does. The authors can’t turn back the years for their senior hero, but they achieve something almost as good: they leave readers believing that the best is yet to come." — Publishers Weekly
