Everyone in the Ellis family is excellent—except Ed, who wonders if this is why he isn't allowed to eat at the table or sit on the couch with the other children. It might be because he's a dog, but nonetheless, he's determined to find his own thing to be great at. But what if he's not excellent enough to belong in this family? The winner of an Ezra Jack Keats New Author Honor Award, this endearing story offers a subtle look at sibling rivalry, and it features Julia Sarcone-Roach's warm and energetic acrylic, watercolor, and crayon illustrations.
