Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-With messages such as every living creature must eat to survive, respect wildlife, and honor cultural diversity, the elements of a very politically correct book are here; unfortunately, the story is rudimentary. A girl finds that her cat has been eaten by a coyote in the woods. Her father attempts to explain about predators, and tells her to ask her teacher, who explains even more. Next, Granny, who is part Passamaquoddy, relates a tale of an Indian chief and his son who see an eagle eating a hare. The girl then rows out to an island to think, falls asleep, and has to make her way home in the dark. After her journey, she is wiser and more sensitive to the whole of nature. The text is full of poetic descriptions and scientific detail, echoed in the elaborate watercolor-and-line paintings. However, the book fails to draw the girl as a tangible character. The illustrations, which display expertise in depicting the animal and plant kingdoms, also fail the girl, who never looks quite the same in any of the drawings. The Big Bad Wolf will be glad to see his myth debunked, and children could learn something, but this book may gather dust on the shelves.-Angela J. Reynolds, West Slope Community Library, Portland, OR

    This book tells the story of a girl who can't find her cat, but the clues lead her to believe something has happened to it. She soon learns from others the relationship and importance of predators and prey and how her cat would be considered a predator to prey like mice, birds and small snakes. I liked the story and thought Mason did a nice job of giving examples, which I think children would understand. Gustav Moore, the illustrator, did a beautiful job with the art. A. D. Tarbox, author of ALREADY ASLEEP
