From Publishers Weekly
Playing Clement Hurd to the late, great Brown is a tall order for any illustrator, even when the volume is no Goodnight, Moon. Brown serves up contagious rhyme with an alliterative sing-song refrain: "Oh he walked around the world on his four fur feet,/ his four fur feet,/ his four fur feet./ And he walked around the world on his four fur feet/ and never made a sound-O." Faced with the challenge of visualizing the perambulating fur-footed creature, Hubbard (Hip Cat) responds with a roughly drawn, vaguely schnauzer-like animal; this banana-yellow beast boasts indeterminate red swirls that indicate wavy hair, and it appears flat as a paper cutout. The artist's opaque gouaches, solidly rendered in a childlike hand and in the zippiest of palettes, have the simplicity of Brown's tongue-twisters, but not their liveliness. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal
PreS?A rousing, rhythmic chant about an appealing animal. "Oh, he walked around the world on his four fur feet,/his four fur feet,/his four fur feet....and never made a sound-O." Sunny gouache illustrations in paintbox colors show his travels as he pads along a river, past a railroad, out into the country where he eventually dreams peacefully about the round world. It's a simple, repetitive tale with the sort of serious whimsy Brown wrote so well. Unlike Remy Charlip's illustrations for the 1961 edition, Hubbard's new artwork depicts the creature itself?and a magnificent beast it is, too?with bright squiggles of red adorning its yellow coat and luxurious curly black whiskers. A fine addition to picture-book collections.?Caroline Parr, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, Fredericksburg, VA
