Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Lee likes having his cat Flora sleep on his bed. She loves to pounce on his toes and fingers when he wiggles them and her soft purr is a comfort. One night, waking from a bad dream, Lee discovers Flora is not there. He is really sad and everyone in the family tries to find his pet. Finally, one day she turns up and what a surprise, although kids who paid attention to the title will figure out what is going to happen. A warm, fuzzy story, but parents beware, it may be difficult to convince your kids that sleeping with a cat may not be a healthy thing to do. A level 2 reader (grades 12) in the "Green Light Reader" series. 1999, Harcourt, $10.95 and $3.95. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot <%ISBN%> 0152023313
Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Three serviceable easy-readers. Repetitive phrases and picture clues make these titles accessible to children, while sophisticated vocabulary "boastful" and the use of similes "soft as silk" add interest and challenge. Each story has a simple plot animals chase an egg as it rolls through the farmyard, a lost cat comes back with her new kittens, and a bragging kangaroo gets its comeuppance and all three have large, bright, cartoon illustrations. A "Meet the Author" section inside the back cover is an added feature.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
