Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Just in time for the holidays, here are two collections of poems, stories, and essays by the famous (e.g., Cleveland Amory, Rita Mae Brown, and Shel Silverstein) and the not-so-famous that demonstrate the allure of cats and dogs. Some of the material has been previously published, but several pieces were created specifically for these anthologies. Readers are treated to a short story by editor Murphy, creator of feline sleuth Joe Grey, about a librarian and her vagrant brother reuniting a family of cat lovers, and the Three Dog Bakery's yummy recipe for "Holidog" muffins, which are sure to delight any canine's taste buds. The recurring theme of the bond between human and pet will make you wonder who really owns whom. Both of these collections are uplifting and recommended for both library collections and as personal gifts for your favorite cat or dog lover.-Edell M.
