    1. The New York Times

      Eight dogs in a pair of quadruple-level bunk beds make for a raucous bedtime shuffle in this clever, delightfully illustrated oversize comics-style board book.

    2. Publishers Weekly, starred review

      The dogs’ prickly personalities, de Monfried’s enthusiastic cartooning, and an innately goofy premise deliver laughs with every page turn.

    3. Kirkus Reviews

      While minimal speech bubbles help convey some action, much of the plot is to be discovered in the funny, detail-rich illustrations, which children will enjoy poring over again and again.

    4. Bookrapt (NZ), November 2015

      Pre-schoolers and parents will smile when they read this comical board book. It showcases the familiar bedtime antics of young ones trying to settle down to sleep.

    5. The Source (NZ/Aust), August 2015

      The conclusion is very amusing but also reflects a situation which all young readers (and all parents) will recognise … A perfect bedtime book.
