  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 April #1
    In a series opener largely built on surreal twists, canine narrator Hotdog introduces himself and two equally clueless buddies, Lizzie, a chameleon, and Kevin, a rotund cat dressed in a cow costume. He then goes on to describe the trio's strenuous efforts to reunite Winston, a fallen nestling of unknown sort, with its mom—who turns out to be not a duck, nor a "karate-chopping rooster," nor one of a troupe of camera-wielding penguins. Sharing space with short lines of well-leaded print laced with bolded words and phrases, the two-tone illustrations fill all or most of every page with scenes of pop-eyed panic as the would-be rescuers struggle to cope with challenges ranging from infiltrating a farm (suddenly that cow costume comes in handy) to changing a diaper. Reunited in the end with her errant offspring, Winston's grateful mom throws a grand party . . . with cake! "I can't wait," Hotdog pants, "for our next adventure!" Beginning readers with a taste for antic misadventure will feel likewise. Grades 1-3. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
