School Library Journal - 02/01/1994 PreS-Gr 2-Arthur's new puppy wreaks so much havoc that the boy fears his parents will send the dog away. When Dad banishes Pal to the garage, the garage key mysteriously disappears. D.W. isn't very optimistic about the animal's future, but her brother insists that he can train him. Arthur then teaches the puppy to sit, stay, lay down, and perform tricks in less than a week. A predictable but satisfying ending finds Pal performing for an appreciative audience and retrieving the missing key. While experienced dog owners may find the speedy transformation unbelievable, a slight twist redeems the ending. Brown's watercolor and ink-line illustrations successfully capture the chaos. Series fans as well as uninitiated readers will find the book's humor and warmth appealing.-Pearl Herscovitch, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Copyright 1994 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 12/01/1993 Brown is back with another sure-to-be-popular story about personable Arthur, the likable aardvark. This time, however, it's Arthur's new puppy, Pal, who's the star of the show. Cute, cuddly Pal is driving Arthur and his family to distraction--he's chewing up the furniture, dribbling in the house, digging up the yard, howling when he's lonely, and refusing to be walked on a leash. It appears he's destined for the garage--until Arthur intercedes and teaches him some proper manners. As usual, Brown's sweet, colorful illustrations sparkle with humor and child appeal, and his message (to prospective puppy owners) comes through loud and clear.
