this is a great book for those of us just starting out on the reading road and Pickles the fire cat is a great friend to go down that road with.

I was a little weary at first of how well my two year old would sit through this long book. My son loves this book. My brother-in-law is a firefighter so hes really into anything that has to do with firefighters. He also loves animals. At first when I flipped through the book there were not many pictures but he did not seem to mind that at all. He sat contently and listened to the whole story. He even kept asking why the big cat was so mean to the little cats. He said that was not nice of him. I think this is a great book and many children will love it. The length of it is a little bit long and I was suprised my two year old sat through it but he did and he really enjoyed it.

and now it's my daughter's -- Fire Cats definitely have their appeal among those high-energy little ones!

My daughter really enjoys reading this book; she has read it several times. Cute story about a cat that was "bad" who turned "good", who was a menace, but became a great helper.

My kids all like this book and I love the deeper story of how Pickles was not a bad cat or a good cat. A great learning story for kids and fun to read too.

I bought this for my 3 year old. Of course he can't read yet but he loves books so I got it. Some of the pages are very long & he gets tires of waiting for me to read the whole page. He gets the gist & wants to move on. Cute story. I'm sure he'll enjoy it more once he's reading to himself.

This book was great for my 6 year old to read. Most of the words are on the 1st grade level and he was so excited to read a "big" book by himself!

Read this when I was a kid in the hospital during the 80's and had to have it for my birthday. One of the greatest children's books I have ever read. I have thought about it over the years before I bought it.

This book was such a favorite of mine when I was little. I'm going to pick it up as a baby gift for my Neice Morgan. (She was born yesterday). I made my mom read me this book every night when I was little, and was always fascinated with fire trucks. Guess what, I'm now in a fire department as a medic, and will be starting firefighter training! Too bad we don't allow cats in the fire house...Pickles was such a good fire house cat too!

Ok baby boomers, who remembers Captain Kangaroo reading this while we ate our cornflakes in front of the tv? I sure do! It's a great story showing that all bad characters can repent & learn to do good. Good story - good lesson.

This is the book I learned to read with and it brings back fond memories. The book reads,'Pickles was not a good cat. Pickles was not a bad cat.' It is a great story with a happy ending.

I read this book when I was in second grade and I have read it to my children. My son is getting married and when he and his wife have children I will read it to my grandchildren.
