From Publishers Weekly:

Children who take comfort in the presence of a friend--even one in stuffed-animal form--will sympathize with the main characters of this compassionate tale. Emily and Ned, the latter a green cloth donkey somewhat resembling Eeyore, are nothing if not inseparable. Emily attributes her own ideas and feelings to Ned, and on her admittedly scary first day of school, Ned naturally tags along. Unfortunately, Ned's classroom experience proves arduous, for he falls on the floor and gets lost. "It sounds as though you and Ned might each have had a better day if he'd been home," Emily's understanding mother comments after the crisis has passed. While Young's first picture book, Maybe It's a Pirate , featured spreads swirling with color, this more restrained book makes good use of negative space and often includes a couple of situations per page. If it's not as artistically freewheeling as its predecessor, this kindhearted book nevertheless comments worthily on security blankets, indulgence and independence. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A pint-sized, rite-of-passage story that's sure to please. Ned is a "lumpy green donkey who walked with a wobble." Emily thinks he's terrific and won't go anywhere without him. After all, Ned makes all the decisions, but Emily always agrees. The first day of school is grand fun with Mrs. Zipper providing lots of love and learning. After lunch Ned is lost and found. Emily decides it might be better for him to stay at home-this is her decision "'But Ned agrees.'" This stuffed animal has all the whimsical charm of Eeyore, and may become as "real" as a well-loved rabbit. Bright, bold, cheerful cartoons provide sturdy support to the narrative, and show a nicely cluttered classroom and a mom who gets around on a bicycle. A satisfying read-aloud for one or many youngsters.
