From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-With the help of her dog, Fred, a little girl pretends to be many things. When the animal is harnessed by a blanket to a chair, the child at the reins becomes a jolly farmer. When she balances a doll on Fred's back, he becomes an elephant carrying a princess. When he drifts off for a nap, she becomes a wildlife ranger keeping a cautious eye on the sleeping "lion." In the end, the game enters scary territory, as Little Red Riding Hood prepares to take granny a treat. When granny shows her toothy grin (payback for the playtime indignities of canines everywhere), the little girl decides she'd rather stay home and play-"with Fred!" Cheerful paper-collage illustrations bring an adorable heroine and her hugable sidekick to life. The large-print, rhyming text, with its perfect proportion of words to art, makes this book an ideal choice for young children.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-5. A small girl and her ever-patient dog, Fred, engage in a lively game of make-believe that allows the pair to become a farmer with a horse and cart, a princess riding on an elephant, a wildlife ranger and a lion, a deep-sea diver and a dolphin, and Red Riding Hood and the wolf. The paper collage artwork is a highlight, containing vibrant hues and exhibiting a simplicity of design that should appeal to young audiences. Lacome introduces each fantasy in a double-page illustration that shows the child and her dog playing against a white background. The following page-and-a-half spread depicts the fantasy that she imagines. Brief, rhyming text adds to the book's appeal, making this a great selection for preschool story hours, especially when paired with an imaginative participatory selection, such as Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (1989).
