"Beck's watercolour paintings create a whimsical personality for Pierre, who can be rumpled as well as carefully groomed...All the humans definitely take a back seat to the spunky canine."
Quill & Quire - November 1, 2011
"Beck's story and illustrations are great fun. Her whimsical watercolour and pencil drawings are packed with Parisian details...and beautifully capture Pierre's joie de vivre. Particularly delightful is the sequence showing Pierre going over the edge of the famed landmark and debonairly sailing through the sky. The book is perfect read-aloud material for the kindergarten set, with challenging vocabulary for early readers."

"Pierre's charm is what sets this book apart from other animal adventures...Pierre’s faithfulness to French clichés is silly and fun and never strays into insensitive territory. His eternal optimism is also appealing...Beck's beautiful illustrations are usually a full-page spread with a smaller illustration on the page with the text. The bright colours are visually appealing, and Pierre's face is very expressive...The humour and adventure in Pierre in the Air will appeal to a wide range of children. Although this book is part of a series, it works well as a stand-alone. Highly Recommended."

"Adventure-seeking poodle Pierre Le Poof heads to Paris with his owner, Miss Murphy, in his third outing...Readers should appreciate Pierre's daring."
