Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is hard to imagine someone living alone, but Kyle was an older fellow who lived in an older house all by himself. One day a kitten (Dolores) became a part of his household. They were friends but Dolores wasn't one who liked to be petted or cuddled, though she was obviously very fond of Kyle. One night she jumped on his head and scratched him. What was wrong? The house was filled with smoke. It was a narrow escape for both and a truly heartwarming ending. This is a true story, part of the "Pets to the Rescue" sub-series within the "Ready to Read" series, Level 1. Illustrations are featured on every page and show Dolores and Kyle as ordinary folks, but kids will come away knowing that Dolores was an extraordinary cat. 2002, Simon & Schuster,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-This wonderful story tells about a cat that saved a man from a fire in their home. Kyle, who had been living alone, acquired Dolores and fell easily into acceptance of her nature. The feline didn't want to be petted but liked having the lights left on in the house; out of love, Kyle appeased her. When black smoke filled the air one night, she used her paws to awaken Kyle. He was able to make it out safely, whereas she was badly burned. With his care, she recovered and even took to sitting on his lap. Beier's realistic watercolor illustrations on each spread reinforce the mood and the action and provide picture clues for new readers. A high-interest subject that will appeal to newly independent readers.-Jessica Snow, Boston Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
