Her favorite parts are all the opportunities for me to make sully voices and noises -- barking, howling, a snooty voice for her ballet teacher.
My favorite part is the moral (you can like whatever you want!) and the clear-but-not-heavy-handed transgression of gender norms, since the dog is male wearing a tutu. As I am a big supporter of trans rights, this is a seriously important subject to me that I felt was broached in an age appropriate way.
The words that the author uses in this book are original and funny. The illustrations are very beautiful, colorful, and well done. This book made reading fun for me. I liked it so much, we bought the other two books by this author. I recommend this book to other children that enjoy reading like I do.
A fantastic, cute and worthy children's book.
