"Carl . . . shows no signs of aging in the 11th book in a series that has 3 million copies in print. . . . It's vintage Alexandra Day: a few words of text driven by rich, expressive watercolors." --USA TODAY

"Young Madeleine and her loyal pup, Carl, are up to their same tricks in this charming addition to a whimsical series. . . . A strong, solid addition." --School Library Journal

"Carl the protective Rottweiler and Madeleine the charming toddler return for another playful adventure in this popular series. . . . Day's paintings are as charming as ever, particularly in the joyful scenes of Madeleine riding on Carl's back." --Kirkus Reviews

"The text is minimal and rightly so, as Day knows just how to make a story move through pictures alone." --Horn Book

"The painting's dreamlike quality captures the lazy summer day feel. Fans of Carl will delight in this summertime romp." --BookLoons

"The attraction, as always, is the evocative watercolor art, coupled here with the fantasy of having secret fun." --Booklist
