Geoffrey Hayes's charming picture books make a smooth transition to a single-volume graphic novel collection for beginning readers. From mealtime to chores, from bathtime to bedtime, Hayes's quartet of tales captures the young cub's boundless energy and personality. ... Here's hoping for many more adventures starring Patrick and his loving family.

Readers’ parents will also see themselves in Patrick’s parents. The detailed illustrations are definitely the highlight. They sequentially capture the emotion to such a degree that words are simply a nice addition. This is a book that will appeal to reluctant readers through humor and illustrations as well as through word repetition and basic vocabulary.
