"The text is accompanied by charming line drawings by Patrick McDonnell, creator of the MUTTS comic strip, which add to the energy, depth and warmth of the writing. Pet owners will chuckle knowingly about the way the speakers shift between simple observations — 'sometimes all you need/ is a friend who won’t/ question you' — and deeper statements, such as 'greet yourself/ in your thousand/ other forms' that reminds us why humans need animals as much as they need us." — The Washington Post
