Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
This book "revels in nature." It was written when Cherry was eight years old and traces the paths of a little girl and her beloved cat, who romp through thick wild-flower strewn woods observing animals and exploring. Cherry writes the kinds of books she liked as a child. She feels that, if she reaches a child's heart and touches his imagination, she can lead him to empowerment and action. Her books are a unity of science, emotion and spirituality.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- In a first-person narrative, a little girl describes her relationship with her cat, Archie. While she's in school, Archie waits patiently, but when she comes home he follows her into the woods for an afternoon of play and observation of the natural world. Then in the evening it's her turn to follow Archie into the mysteries of a moonlit night. A sense of discovery permeates the pages, and the attractive illustrations reveal much to readers. They're dense and detailed, creating a lush, idyllic setting. While the plot is practically nonexistent, the book could serve as a jumping-off place for readers to talk about their own discoveries, and children will respond to the warmth of the story. --Leda Schubert, Vermont Department of Education, Montpelier
