Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Woods, who have collaborated on such celebrated children’s books as The Napping House (1984), have another collaboration going, that of keeping their two pug dogs thriving. This book is about one of their pugs, Duffy. It’s also about telling time: the illustrations have cleverly hidden clocks that show the times that nap-loving Duffy succumbs to his Before Breakfast, After Breakfast, Early Afternoon, and Early Evening naps. The Woods have a sure-handed knack for showing the daily life of a dog (whose biggest excitements come from the appearance of food, other dogs, and, of course, all those naps) in a way that is not only funny but will connect with kids establishing their own routines. The watercolors mark time as well, moving from the golden warmth of the day to the cooler shadings of dusk, and finally into the soft gold of a home’s interior at night. Endearing and comforting. Preschool-Grade 1. --Connie Fletcher

More About the Author

AUDREY WOOD is the much-loved author of more than thirty books for children, including the bestselling The Napping House, Piggies, Heckedy Peg, and most recently, Piggy Pie Po, which she collaborated on with her husband, Don Wood.
She lives in Hawaii.

My first memories are of Sarasota, Florida in the winter quarters of the Ringling Brothers' Circus. I was one year old and remember it vividly. My father, an art student, was making extra income by repainting circus murals.

The people in the circus were my friends. I was bounced on the knee of the tallest man in the world and rocked in the arms of the fat lady who could not stand up. My first baby-sitters were a family of little people who lived in a trailer next to ours. They tAudrey2old me stories about the animals they worked with: Chi Chi the Chimpanzee, an elephant named Elder, and Gargantua the Gorilla.

My mother says I was a fast learner, always ahead of my age. My father taught me to swim before I could walk. I walked at seven months and climbed over a seven foot chain link fence when I was one year old. Everyone in the circus thought I was going to be a trapeze artist.

When I was two, I traveled with my parents to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where they studied art. Spanish became my second language. Because my mother read to me every day, I fell in love with books and was reading by age three.

My parents had two more girls, which made me the oldest sister. All of us were trained in the arts: music, dance, painting, and drama. We had a miniature stage in our basement, complete with light-bulb floodlights and a dusty red velvet curtain. Admission for the plays we produced was a bargain--twenty-five cents.

When I was in the first grade, I wanted to grow up to be an artist like my father. Then, in the fourth grade, I decided I'd like to be a children's book author. As an adult who writes and illustrates children's books, I have realized both my childhood ambitions.

I got in trouble in school once for crossing out my favorite author's name and putting in mine--Audrey Brewer instead of Dr. Seuss!

My great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all professional artists. Since I am also a professional artist, there are four consecutive generations of artists in our family. However, I am the only female artist.

On our honeymoon, I read my new husband Don Wood the classic children's book entitled At the Back of the North Wind. Seven years later, we teamed up to create our first picture book together.

When our son Bruce Robert was two years old, I began to read picture books to him. He helped to remind me of my childhood ambitions. That's when I began to write children's books seriously.

This book is so adorable. Duffy is a dog that seems to sleep if there is nothing else going on. Or joins his "familly" on the couch or chair or bed and sleeps next to them. The pictures are charming What Time is it? It's Duffy Time by Audrey & Don Wood just made me smile. Recommended for dog lovers or anyone that wants to smile.

Love to take this book when my pug and I go to Therapy Dog visits to libraries. It has wonderful illustrations--pug is accurately an appealingly depicted, as well as their love of snooze time. It is also short enough for a quick read when other children are waiting their turn. It's a larger format, too, which helps young readers. Highly recommended!

We've never had a pug in our family, so I know nothing about the breed's sleeping habits. What I loved about Duffy was his happy-go-lucky personality. He knows how to get comfortable and relax no matter the day, the hour, nor the location. I appreciated the scenes where he stays awake long enough to be with family. That's a marvelous final illustration of Duffy, wearing his matching pj's and snuggling against his best friend to share her book.

I love Audrey Wood's books. I am a picky reader. Very selective of the books I buy. I have twins who are 17 months and they love books. This book had them laughing. They love the pictures and Duffy has all kinds of funny positions when he sleeps! Entertaining book for toddlers.

I have no doubt that dog lovers will be drawn to this book. Duffy is a cute little pug that enjoys eating and napping . . . lots and lots of napping. Charming illustrations reveal Duffy in all sorts of cute sleeping positions, but Duffy is wide awake at bedtime when he's able to snuggle in bed with his best friend - a little girl.

This is a cute book and I enjoyed reading it the first time. However, considering that the storyline consists mostly of sleeping, the text came across a little dull the second time. The pictures and comedic element to this book are still worthy, though it may have been better done it a shorter board book format.

I have a pug. I always tell my kindergartens red about him. This book was perfect! Andrey Wood's depiction of a pug (hers) was spot on!
