From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Willie and his dog Freckles are best friends until Jane moves in next door. Jane is allergic to dogs and thinks that Freckles smells, so Willie banishes his dog to the basement or leaves him behind when he goes to visit his new friend. Freckles grows visibly sadder and sadder. Eventually, after a disastrous episode with a valentine, Willie realizes who his true friend is, he apologizes to Freckles, and the two are the best of friends once more. This is an old theme, but a valid one, and despite the contrivances involved, the book illustrates an important lesson. The watercolor and ink pictures are adequate, if a bit scratchy at times, and the expressions on the characters' faces are suitably evocative of the action. On the whole, this should be a welcome addition to story times, particularly for those who need additional material for Valentine's Day. Kathleen Brachmann, Highland Park Public Lib . , Ill.

From Publishers Weekly:

Endearing pictures help tell the story of Freckles, the dog, and Willie, his master. Freckles, the personification of a boy's best friend, is dreadfully unhappy when Willie devotes all his time and affection to his newfound friend Jane. Because Jane does not like dogs, Freckles is neglected and hurt. Willie, smitten by Jane, draws her a beautiful valentine, only to have it refused. Now, the shoe on the other foot, Willie is the one to feel hurt and Freckles, holding no grudges, becomes his best pal again. The book offers a nice lesson in relationships and loyalty that even the youngest child can grasp.
