Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Like Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s Dog and Bear (2007), Slonim’s title introduces an inseparable pair through three distinct stories. Patch is a sometimes scruffy, sometimes mischievous, and always adorable mutt; Patch’s owner, a little boy who narrates the stories, is the dog’s most ardent fan. In the first episode, Patch can’t resist his urge to chase rabbits and ends up covered in thorns from a prickly bush. Next come fleas: after trying flea collars, flea powder, and a flea bath, the bug-ridden pooch must sleep outside. In the final episode, the little boy trains his dog to sit, catch, and perform tricks, but fear overtakes Patch, who simply freezes up on competition day. Despite these amusing mishaps, the little boy pulls out Patch’s thorns, nestles beside Patch for the night (“What are a few fleas between friends?”), and accepts Patch just the way he is. The cartoonish watercolors highlight both Patch’s comical antics and his endearing bond with his owner. Add this to the growing list of early reader buddies. Preschool-Grade 2. --Angela Leeper

Review

“A short, funny tale that will resonate with preschoolers and new readers, as well as older children who need simple but meaningful stories.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Add this to the growing list of early reader buddies.” ―Booklist

“Sweet and well-executed.” ―School Library Journal

“It's great to have a pet story that emphasizes caretaking as well as affection; use this in partnership with a friendship story like Frog and Toad to talk about our comradeship with man's best friend. ” ―BCCB

Format: Hardcover
This is a loveable book about the relationships between a boy and a dog named Patch. After Patch chased a rabbit, he ended up in a prickly bush. The boy removed his thorns and bandaged him. No matter Patch was successful or not, the boy loved and cared for him. Even when Patch had flea, the boy slept with him in his doghouse. The illustrations are beautiful. They made me smile and felt me warm. All children must read this book, and I'm sure both parents, and grandparents will also enjoy it.

I purchased this book as soon as it was available because I really like the author who was also the illustrator and the story is a good read aloud book - it is colorful and the characters have wonderful expressions! I am eager to read it to my grandchildren - I think that they will really like it. The story keeps your interest - it is well worth the price. I will probably order a couple more to give my grandchildren.

Great book for dog lovers.
3 stories about the friendship of a child with a dog.
The stories are: Rabbits, Fleas, The Contest.

The illustrations are simple but great. And the story is very lovely.

"We're buddies through thick and thin," I said.
"No matter what."
