School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Two lovable dogs are good friends, although they are very different. Fred is tall and rather bumbling; Ted is short and more capable. When they go camping, they often have their own preferences and ways of doing things. Each one allows the other to have his own way without commenting or teasing, despite Fred's usual misjudgment and clumsiness. All in all, the pals enjoy the various activities commonly pursued on such outings: pitching a tent; canoeing and fishing; and finding, cooking, and eating apples, berries, and nuts. Continuing the legacy of his father, Eastman has created an appealing picture book for new readers. The colorful, cartoon illustrations accurately depict the action and emotion of the simple text. A readable, fun-filled book.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Horn Book Review

Fred and Ted, two dog characters created by P.D. Eastman, the author's father, embark on a camping adventure. ""That night, Fred was awake. Ted was asleep. The next morning...Ted woke up early. Fred woke up late."" Portrayed with humor in the amiable cartoon illustrations, the many differences between the two friends will likely engage beginning readers. (c) Copyright 2010.
