ACHUKA Book of the Day 20 Jul 2021
“Rendered in uncluttered lines and simple shapes on off-white pages, the illustrations are notable for their effective use of negative space and clever overall design that projects action and ambiance with minimal clutter. Frido is drawn in simple lines and a uniform tan/yellow wash but nevertheless conveys a truly impressive variety of expressions and poses… A grand match of dry humor and sweet illustrative delivery.” KIRKUS
“Pleasingly whimsical.” FT
When Frido the dog is left at home by himself, he feigns loneliness just long enough to get his owner out the door – and then the fun begins. After scootering down the hallway and somersaulting on the bed, Frido embarks on a strict agenda of all his favourite things: dressing up, chatting online, yoga, and disco-dancing with friends. But the day goes by too quickly! Can he cover his tracks in time?
