From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 4—Tuesday is a service dog for Montalván, who has post-traumatic stress disorder, among other disabilities, and knows exactly how and when to soothe him. Tuesday is always with his owner, supporting him as he goes down stairs or riding with him in cabs. The book is told from the dog's point of view and narrated in a calm, easy-to-understand tone ("I even sleep with him, which helps control his nightmares"). The book is humorous but also portrays the sometimes-depressing reality of Montalván's life. It documents their daily activities, including going to the veteran's hospital. There are special treats, too, such as an ice-cream cone at Coney Island. Readers see the close bond between the two and how they care for each other. Crisp, full-page, full-color photographs make evident this strong bond and show their busy life in New York City. The book concludes with an informational note from Montalván that explains more about his disabilities and how much freedom Tuesday has given him. He also talks briefly about the organization that trained Tuesday. A well-written, informative book for both school and public libraries.—Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZ
