School Library Journal - 05/01/2016 PreS-Gr 2—Douglas is a lovable little dog whose nearsightedness often gets him into trouble. He is unable to see important things like signs and squirrels, and one day a run-in with a beehive prompts his owner Nancy to take him to the eye doctor for glasses. After meeting the doctor and failing the eye test somewhat hilariously, Douglas picks out the perfect pair of glasses and is able to see all of the amazing things and people around him. The tale is light on text, and the blurry font is limited to the cover and title page; the pencil and watercolor cartoon illustrations are what make this book so delightful. Funky patterns and a playful use of bold colors enhance the story and the reading experience. - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 05/01/2016 The title says it all, with one exception: Douglas is a dog. Nearsighted, he has been known to walk through wet cement. He has even gone into the wrong house and eaten food from a neighbor’s dog dish. When Nancy, the girl who cares for him, throws him a ball, Douglas fetches what appears to be a wasp nest instead. Later, at the eye doctor’s office, Douglas misidentifies a series of pictures on the eye chart. But after choosing the perfect frames, he walks out wearing glasses and is amazed to see his surroundings clearly for the first time. Kids who wear glasses will understand his reaction, and even those with 20/20 vision will enjoy the story, especially the funny sequence in which Douglas mistakes the silhouette of a squirrel for a dinosaur, a car for a flying saucer, and so on. The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations enhance the story’s humor through cartoonlike figures within a colorful, imaginative setting. An appended double-page spread features photos of 18 real kids wearing glasses. It’s a satisfying conclusion to an amusing picture book. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
