In a humorous look at adjusting to change, the two family dogs, Marshmallow and FudgeFudge, grumble about how that new animal—a baby—has altered their lives at home. No one wants to play, FudgeFudge has lost her place on the couch, and worst of all is that new animal smell. But when Grandpa pays a visit, the dogs are surprised by how loyal to it they have suddenly become.

    " I love this book!Experience the arrival of a new baby from the dogs' perspective. What makes this book wonderful is how well it captures the change in the people and the animals and how they all become a family in the end. Precious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina Denson | 1/17/2014

    " I wish there was a way to give 10 stars to a book. I loved this one!!!!!!! So cute and funny, not really a children's book, more of a book for dog owners who have children. Fudgefudge and Marshmallow act just like my doggie when my oldest was newborn...Sigh..... :oD "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana Snyder | 12/7/2013

    " Send home with students that are expecting a sibling. Could also be used in science to talk about various animals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randall | 12/3/2013

    " What I love about this book is how it surprises the reader by making the "new animal" the baby. By "twisting" the expectation of the reader, this picture book creates both comedy ("It's not such a dumb animal after all, whispers FudgeFudge) and suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 11/14/2013

    " This is a cute story. A new baby arrives and Fudgefudge and Marshmallow feel neglected. They agree that it's not a useful animal, smells funny and they hate it. Until, gradually, they get used to the intruder and decide that it's not so dumb after all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kixie | 10/1/2013

    " Bright pastel illustrations accompany plenty of white space for text. Story is a funny tale of two dogs adjusting to the newest animal in their owners' lives, a baby. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 6/5/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laci | 10/16/2012

    " The dogs, which are animals, are calling the human baby, an animal! The students, I think, would find this comical! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Bennett | 9/20/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Burke | 5/17/2012
