KIRKUS REVIEW

 Kovalski (Pizza for Breakfast, 1991, etc.) introduces two lovable dogs that live happily together behind a French restaurant. One day, when Edward takes off for work without his dinner, Brenda follows him and gets lost. She takes a scary ride on the subway, then finds herself in a strange neighborhood, where she is discovered and adopted. Sadly, Brenda and Edward are separated for years, but hope lives onEdward's sensitive nose leads him to his companion, and they are reunited in a tender ending. Soft, inviting illustrations brim with magnificent detail and atmosphere. Once readers give themselves over to the hybrid world in which the dogs dwellthey are clearly canine, with doggy features and abilities, but in all other ways act humanthey will relish this two-hankie telling and the tidy illustrations of love lost and found. (Picture book. 3-7)
