From Publishers Weekly:

Benjy's newest adventure (he's been involved in three others: Benjy and the Barking Bird , Benjy's Dog House and Benjy's Boat Trip ) is another winner. Benjy is an outgoing, friendly brown dog ("with long ears and a short tail") who lives next door to Fifi, a retiring poodle who has trouble joining in escapades with the other neighborhood dogs. Her owner, Mrs. Jones, enters Fifi in a dog show and brings Benjy along for moral support. Fifi panics when Mrs. Jones goes off for a minute, slips off the table (dangling from her leash, which Benjy chews through) and races throughout the grounds in a frenzy of fear. Two neighborhood dogs, also on display at the show, help Benjy find Fifi; she loses her fear of other dogs and goes on to enjoy the friendship of her peers. The action of this tale is expertly pacedFifi's reticence is beautifully drawn, which makes her newfound confidence a victory that all readers will rejoice in. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Fifi is a shy, nervous poodle who will play only with Benjy, the dog next door. When Fifi's owner, Mrs. Jones, enters her in the local dog show, she takes Benji along to calm Fifi. Chaos reigns soon after their arrival at the park, when Fifi panics and breaks free. Strangely, the adventure cures Fifi of her nervousness. Logical, only if one believes in shock treatment. Crayon drawings in blue, green, and gold tones illustrate this mild adventure with humor. However, one disturbing illustration shows Fifi hanging from her leash after she slips from a table top. The story is not exceptionalconsider it only where other titles about Benjy (Harper) are in demand. Nancy Curtin, Port Washington Public Library, N.Y.
