Children's LiteratureAGERANGE: Ages 5 to 9.
Through the perspective of a household pet cat, the reader senses Bandit's confusion as he encounters a new experience--moving day. While his familiar surroundings are changing rapidly, Bandit questions and comments on all the activity. He sees furniture being moved and notices boxes stacked in the rooms. Furthermore, his toys, bed, litter box, and food are no longer in their usual places. Bandit does not understand the commotion in the household and suddenly, he finds himself placed in the cat carrier. Based on his previous experiences involving the carrier, Bandit thinks that he is going on a trip to the vet, until the duration of the car ride hints differently. The baffled cat is brought to a new and strange location where nothing is familiar. Bandit decides to escape and find his way back home. Unfortunately, there are new occupants in the place he knew as home. Along with the narrative, Bandit's comments, captured in speech bubbles, express his feelings in the story frames. The story is presented in the format of a graphic novel for younger children. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
