KIRKUS REVIEW

Full cycle -- man into dog into man -- as Private Bedlington is conditioned first by the issue of his dog tag, then by the barked command "Crawl" -- and slowly discovers that he has taken on the externals of his name. And then in pictures and brief captions, his adventures -- his discovery that he is discriminated against as no soldier of the armed forces should be discriminated against -- his final departure on furlough, his brief enlistment in K-9, his reconversion, are entertainingly traced. Insert some double meanings if you will -- or turn the pages for sheer escape on dog days.
