The most fitting word I can find for this book is appealing. McDuff, a little grey dog that no one seems to want, is surprisingly appealing for a stray. It is easy to see how life with Lucy and Fred would be appealing for McDuff—from their lovely home furnishings to their cozy habits, their picture-perfect life is missing just one thing—a dog. The text is on the spare side as if told from the perspective of the dog. Rosemary Wells’ vibrant and warm illustrations give the story real heart. Although I am not sure which decade she was aiming for, I have always liked the period feel of the illustrations. Our family has never had a dog but, in the context of this book, even I find the idea of having a dog appealing.
