Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Myrna Dee Marler
Amy is one of a group of four eight-year-old friends who started The Critter Club, a shelter for lost or abandoned animals. Each book in the "Critter Club" series focuses on one girl's adventures and/or mishaps. In this outing, Amy is introduced by her father to his new fiancee's daughter Chloe. Amy is a little shy and she wants Chloe to like her, but it seems at first that Chloe is good at practicing sly little tricks to make Amy look silly and herself look better. Amy is worried that the two of them will not ever get along or have any interests in common until she helps Chloe overcome her fear of dogs and introduce some of the animals at the Critter Club. A short chapter book that contains a situation that many young people might face these days; this would be a good choice for supporting the core curriculum. Book five in the "Critter Club" series.

Meet the Author

Callie Barkley loves animals. As a young girl, she dreamed of getting a cat or dog of her own until she discovered she was allergic to most of them. It was around this time that she realized the world was full of all kinds of critters that could use some love. She now lives with her husband and two kids in Connecticut. They share their home with exactly ten fish and a very active ant farm.

Marsha Riti illustrated the picture book The Picky Little Witch. She lives in Austin, Texas, where she likes to take long walks, stopping frequently to pet neighborhood kitties.
