Summary
Lovable mutt Ed discovers that everyone is excellent at something...

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?

Stacy McAnulty and Julia Sarcone-Roach tell the funny story of an endearing dog who discovers that his family adores him, just as he is.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "All the Ellis children were excellent at something. Except Ed. While Elaine excels at soccer, Ed (who may or may not realize that he is a dog) slobbers all over the ball. Ernie bakes exquisite cupcakes Ed eats them. The kids even surpass Ed at the sweetly dim doggie skills that he claims for his own: breaking stuff (Elaine breaks a scoring record), losing things (the twins lose baby teeth), and forgetting stuff (the family ballerina forgets to be nervous and aces her audition). Pop-eyed, pointy-muzzled, slightly scruffy Ed is all tail-wagging ecstatic energy in warm, relaxed pencil lines with acrylic, watercolor, and crayon in glowing greens and yellows. Smart correlations between what Ed isn't allowed to do and what he turns out to be really excellent at wrap this warm, fuzzy story of a close-knit African American family and their pet up with a bow. Ed joins the pack of picture books about irresistible pups that includes David Shannon's Good Boy, Fergus! (2006) and Chris Raschka's A Ball for Daisy (2011).--Willey, Paula Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ed, a scruffy white dog whose tail seems to be in a perpetual state of wagging, worries that he doesn't measure up to the African-American family he lives with. The Ellis children are talented athletes, bakers, ballerinas, and more, and even when Ed hits on things that he does excel at, the children show him up. "I'm definitely excellent at breaking stuff," thinks Ed as Sarcone-Roach (The Bear Ate Your Sandwich) shows him in the midst of a kitchen with garbage and glassware strewn across the floor. But then Elaine goes and "breaks" a soccer record. And while Ed is good at losing (objects he buries) and forgetting (to wipe his paws), the twins lose their first teeth, and Edith aces a dance audition by forgetting to be nervous. Dominated by bright yellows and grassy greens, Sarcone-Roach's mixed-media pictures brim with familial warmth and mischievous canine energy, while McAnulty (the Dino Files series) leaves readers with the worthwhile message that it sometimes takes an outside perspective to recognize one's strengths.
