Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—Arfy, a floppy-eared mutt on Butternut Street, is on a mission to find his forever home. He writes a letter listing all of his admirable attributes (he is potty trained and has his own squeaky toy) to the people in the yellow house. The mail lady delivers Arfy's letter. Unfortunately, the people turn him down. Arfy keeps trying, writing more letters delivered by the mail lady. All write him back and decline his offer. Feeling sad and dejected, Arfy cries himself to sleep in his soggy box. When he wakes he finds a letter from the mail lady asking to be Arfy's person. Arfy, full of glee, sprints to the mail lady with his reply letter. Vibrantly colored digital illustrations, with no white space, captivate readers from the first page. Loosely placed shapes and textures artfully create Butternut Street. The story is told in illustrated, personalized letters. Arfy's are written in crayon and signed with a paw print. Readers will be cheer Arfy on and feel relief when he finds a person to love. The last page lists ways readers can help a homeless animal. VERDICT No bones about it; this humorous picture book will be a hit with storytime audiences and emergent readers.—Mindy Hiatt, Salt Lake County Library Services

Review

"This story is a warm hug in book form, and reminds readers that there's a friend out there for each of us." —Vicki Wright, Cape May County Library 

"Sure to win the hearts of dog-lovers, this big, colorful picture book is fun for reading aloud." —Booklist

"
A large format and bold, exuberant illustrations are well-matched with Arfy's enthusiastic personality and can-do attitude. The letter format makes this a fine choice for early-elementary students learning to compose letters. Persuasive writing by a persistently pleasing pooch." —Kirkus Reviews

"No bones about it; this humorous picture book will be a hit with storytime audiences and emergent readers."  —Mindy Hiatt, Salt Lake County Library Services, School Library Journal 

"It's an instant classic in our household." —#1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas
