School Library Journal - Steven Engelfried, Wilsonville Public Library, OR

"Concise single profiles of more than 150 dog breeds make this an appealing resource for pet shelves. . . .The short tips about care and training make this title useful for prospective dog owners as well as kids who just want to browse. . . .An appealing and accessible introduction to the subject  and recommended for those seeking additional materials on canines." - School Library Journal

"For all those who religiously watch the annual American Kennel Club National Championships on TV, this is the book for you. . . . .The writing, though brief, is realistic about the breed but positive overall about each one. Of course, it wouldn’t be an encyclopedia without plenty of photographs, and this delivers in spades, with every entry showing off the dogs in full color and with plenty of lively personality. This is a resource young readers will turn to again and again not only for the interesting facts but also for the fantastic, enthusiastic pictures of their favorite canine companions." - Booklist
