Review

Even the youngest listeners will have a howling good time. "Kirkus Reviews"

Children will appreciate both the absurdity of Peter's behavior and Jarka's delivery. Every collection needs lighthearted fare with strong boy appeal, and Love That Puppy! fits the bill. "School Library Journal"

Jarka channels the Cartoon Network aesthetic to the hilt with this debut story of a boy in touch with his inner canine . The cartooning is good manic fun, and the exaggerated characters feel grounded in reality. Jarka, unlike W.C. Fields, is clearly someone who loves working with both dogs and small children. "Publishers Weekly"" Praise for "Love That Puppy!: "
