03. I'm the Best! (Holiday House, 1991)
Marjorie Weinman Sharmat & Hillenbrand (Preschool-Grade 3)

A dog who has lived with many owners and many different names finally finds the family that wants to keep him and love him forever.

“Sharmat's perfect poochy perspective contains just the right blend of canine comedy and cynicism. Hillenbrand's pithy illustrations show a somewhat bedraggled mutt who indeed lives up to his title statement.”

Publishers Weekly

“Hillenbrand's colorful paintings have the same warm, spontaneous feeling as the text. Dudley is a wonderfully scruffy looking animal- skinny, flop-eared, and animated.”

School Library Journal

“…Hillenbrand's robust yet empathetic illustrations make this unusually attractive. Comical and heartwarming.”
