Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dia L. Michels
Jeffrey, Beaner, Raymond and Mike-they are the animal rescue club. If a squirrel is caught in the mud, an opossum in a gutter, or a duck is spinning circle in a pond, this group of kids is off to the rescue. Lively color illustrations capture the action while these kids join the Wildlife Rehabilitation to help the wild animals in their neighborhood. Based on real events, this story will engage the young animal lover.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3In this beginning reader, the young members of the Animal Rescue Club help a squirrel drowning in mud, an opossum stuck in a rooftop gutter, and a goose with a wounded foot. The creatures are taken to an animal hospital where an adult oversees their care. After they have recovered, the children release the creatures back into their habitats. Cartoon illustrations show the club in action. Although an author's note explains that it is dangerous to approach injured animals and that wildlife rehabilitators must be trained and licensed, adults do not assist with the rescues and no mention of training is made in the narrative. The images in the story contrast with the warnings: a youngster rides his bike with a squirrel peeking out of his backpack, a boy totters on a high ladder with an opossum clinging to his shirt, and a girl puts her arms around a huge goose that is pulling her hair. While this book features characters that do important work with courage and competence, issues about safety and the proper treatment of wild animals make it a questionable choice.Adele Greenlee, Bethel College, St. Paul, MN
