Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Eleven-year-old Megan is an aspiring veterinarian and has the chance to put her ambitions to the test for six weeks of summer vacation. She is interning at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver where her Uncle Bob is a surgeon. This is a real challenge and a treat for an animal lover like Megan. She soon learns that working at an animal hospital isn't all fun and games. This is a serious animal hospital that treats real emergencies and requires difficult decisions that don't always have easy or expected outcomes. Through her intern experience, Megan meets and works with interesting doctors and meets some extraordinary people who are (or become) a part of the family at Alameda East. This is a fascinating story told from Megan's perspective, although the target audience seems limited (eleven- to twelve-year old female animal lovers). This is a believably written book and holds interest, with a variety of appealing characters and relationships. The book is based on the Animal Planet television series and well worth the price. 2001, Dutton Children's Books, $14.89 and $5.99. Ages 11 to 12. Reviewer: Trina Heidt
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Ten-year-old Megan spends an interesting summer as an intern for her uncle, Dr. Robert Taylor, a surgeon at the Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver. The characters of Uncle Bob and his colleagues are based on actual vets at the real 24-hour emergency hospital, and Denver bird-activist Katherine "Birdy" Hurlbutt makes a cameo appearance. Despite the fact that this short novel is based on the Animal Planet television series and the CIP indicates a nonfiction work, Marino fills the work with dialogue and observations reported by the fictional Megan, modeled after Dr. Taylor's niece. This TV tie-in will not be the place to glean factual information for reports, but it should find a home on the popular reading shelves where it will find an eager audience among the large corps of young veterinarian wanna-bes. Eight pages of black-and-white photos of the actual hospital's staff and clients are included.-Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
