Booklist - 04/15/2021 *Starred Review* In this winning boy-dog friendship story, a small dog, whose boy uses a wheelchair, narrates her own adventures on a day that might look ordinary to us and to her boy but that, for the dog, is filled with the highest highs and lowest lows. The dog speaks in short, rhyming bursts, a nice equivalent to barking. She wakes up, licks her boy’s face as the boy moves from bed to wheelchair, hands him a dropped sock, and then they’re off on a day that includes going to the park and watching in horror as the dog chases a snake into the lake. For the dog, this is part of her refrain: “Best day ever!” But things go south after the dog rolls around on a dead fish and the boy reacts poorly to her smell, and again when the dog knocks over a lamp after a much-needed bath. It’s then the “worst day ever,” until the boy’s forgiveness sets things right. Nixon’s illustrations reflect the dog’s changing moods and include loads of comic detail. A fun romp. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
