Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One of the most exceptional and offbeat stories in some time." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An all-animal cast stars in a "quirky" and "wry" story that, said PW, "relies on a cautious balance of understatement and zaniness." Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
Linda Ward Callaghan
Hodges the elephant's cafe is renowned for its tasty pastries, but the "no tigers, please" policy is challenged one evening when three tigers enter the cafe and request elephant schnitzel and pigs benedict. Hodges' pet duck uses his glib tongue to start a rumpus. But when a food fight ensues, and the tigers are revealed to be sophisticated gourmands, Hodges quietly reverses the "no tigers" policy. Muted colors and soft watercolor-and-ink illustrations and an understated text play counterpoint to the slapstick plot action. For instance, the text accompanying a double-page spread in which the food fight reduces the cafe to chaos reads, "Things got a little out of control." Whether taken as a cautionary tale on xenophobia or as the story of a zany pie fight, Egan's book is an appealing offering.
