From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- Elizabeth, about five years old, is always slamming doors, slurping food, and otherwise creating a racket. One day, after her mother asks her to be a little quieter, Elizabeth obeys by becoming a very quiet dog. Finally, her mother confesses to missing her noisy daughter, and the child reappears, turning a cartwheel into her mother's lap. Water illustrations depict a largely suburban setting. Elizabeth and her mother are drawn in a cartoon style that seems slightly stiff, although the mother's relaxed attire and the child's bright eyes and skinned knee suit the text well. The story is slight, but many preschoolers and their parents will identify with the characters and the situation. Illustrations are large enough to use with a group, but this will be best shared one-on-one by parents and their children. --Danita Nichols, New York Public Library

From Kirkus Reviews:

Elizabeth makes a continuous racket; when her desperate mother waxes firm, Elizabeth makes an abrupt reversal: now she's a dog who never speaks. Her mother goes along; finally, Elizabeth has sustained her charade so well that Mom grows plaintive: ``Dog, you're no fun...I wish Elizabeth would come home...It's much too quiet here without her.'' This pungent sample of creative negotiation between beleaguered parent and relentlessly lively child has simple, cheery illustrations that capture the action and mood with engaging precision.
