What's Excellent Ed About

Publisher Summary

Dog lovers will adore this imperfect yet endearing mutt and his quest for excellence! Everyone in the Ellis family is excellent—except Ed. Ed wonders if this is why he isn’t allowed to eat at the table or sit on the couch with the other children. So he’s determined to find his own thing to be excellent at—only to be (inadvertently) outdone by a family member every time. Now Ed is really nervous—what if he’s not excellent enough to belong in this family? This funny and endearing story offers a subtle look at sibling rivalry and self esteem, and will reassure kids that everyone is excellent at something, and that your family loves you, just as you are. Praise for Excellent Ed: Winner of an Ezra Jack Keats New Author Honor Award! “A dog lover’s delight.” —School Library Journal “In Julia Sarcone-Roach’s joyful, expressive paintings, we see Ed pondering how to demonstrate excellence. The answer is excellent, and entirely endearing.” —The Wall Street Journal “A warm, welcome reminder that everyone is excellent at something.” —Kirkus Reviews starred review “In a word? Excellent.” —The Horn Book starred review
