Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Tuesday the cat cannot wait for a mother duck's 11 eggs to hatch, for older cats have told him that, "-little tasty ducklings make a yummy catch." The mother and father duck keep shooing Tuesday away from their nest, quacking, "Feathers and fur don't mix!" When the protective parents get caught in a fierce thunderstorm, Tuesday saves the floating nest from crashing into a tree, only to watch all of the eggs crack open. "`Oh, my goodness!' thought the cat. `Do I eat them-or greet them?'" Of course, he chooses wisely, and when the stranded pair return, quacking wildly, Tuesday is vindicated by the ducklings, who agree, "Feathers and fur mix fine, especially when you take the time." The illustrations are adequate, although they look more like colored drafts than polished works. The same can be said of the didactic text.-Lisa Gangemi Krapp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
