Publisher's Weekly Review

Making her debut, Gardiner introduces gangly, black-haired Poppy and her spotted dog, Max, both of whom enjoy imitating Poppy's "favorite animals." They can roar like a tiger, stand on one leg like a flamingo and bounce like a kangaroo. Gardiner emphasizes the uncanniness of their impersonations on each spread, by pairing each performance with a portrait of the actual animal. Drawing on her roots as a fabric designer, she features Poppy in a giraffe-print dress as the girl "walks tall" and clad in yellow boots that recall webbed feet when the heroine "splashes like a duck." Even after Poppy's homage to her favorite septet of wild animals, Max remains her "favorite of all," and Max "loves Poppy just the way she is." The bright and energetic pictures of Max emulating Poppy imitating a flamingo or leopard will tickle funny bones. Ages 2-6. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-This beautifully designed, vividly colored picture book depicts a girl and her dog as they pretend to be her favorite animals. They walk like a giraffe, splash like a duck, waddle like a penguin, leap like a leopard, stand like a flamingo, and bounce like a kangaroo. Poppy's favorite animal of all, though, is Max, her dog, because he loves her "just the way she is." The child's dress changes from picture to picture, matching the animal she and Max are pretending to be: a tiger print, a leopard print, pink like a flamingo, and brown like a kangaroo. The stylized illustrations are artistic and imaginative, using elements from fabric design. They ably depict the joy of a youngster at play. Preschoolers will want to join in with each separate antic of this engaging duo as they appreciate this entertaining book.-Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
