Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-In this beginning reader, an unnamed narrator arrives at a vacation cottage with his friends and family. Sent to the store for ketchup and ice cream, the boys are cautioned to "Be home before dark, and don't go into the forest!" However, the children linger to watch a game near the beach, and consider taking a shortcut home through the wooded area. This prompts each boy to tell a spooky story that takes place in a forest, featuring cannibalistic Little People and the Pot Woman, as well as Berbalangs, people who turn into "heads with wings" that flap and attack. Each tale involves a brush with danger and a safe ending. When the boys have finished sharing stories they run through the forest to reach home on time, and become frightened upon encountering a woman with a large pot, who turns out to be a friendly neighbor. The large-print font and numerous illustrations will appeal to new readers. A concluding note identifies Berbalangs as Philippine in origin and Little People and the Pot Woman as "characters that appear in Native American legends," without attribution to tribes or regions.- Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    AngelWings and BloodRose

    A pure white she cat whispered in Lynx's ear. "Kiss him! Kiss him! It will help his broken heart." Bloodrose shoved the other cat aside. "Ew! Abandon him! Let him die!" she chimed.
