Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
Kelly's cabin is made out of a big cardboard box. It has a window with curtains, pictures on the walls, a cabin-sized table, and a wonderful view. Kelly imagines that her cabin is a farmhouse from pioneer times. Now, if only she had someone to share it with. She had become bored with just drawing pictures and putting them up. Her playmate Melissa was not as thrilled with it as Kelly had imagined. The boy, Sean, was not much fun either. A black-and-white dog, Winnie, was curious about the cabin, so Kelly invited her in. A red haired outlaw (Sean) calls Winnie out and he likes Kelly's cabin. Kelly still played with Melissa every day. Winnie came to the cabin and Kelly took her inside. She left the dog there when she went to bed. She went to let Winnie out and saw a Hooded Fang and lights coming toward her--it was Sean and his mother. They took Winnie away but Sean would be back with her to play together. It is a nice little story in a rather attractive paperback book. I think that it will find a reading audience.

Read an Excerpt

Winnie barked. Kelly let her go. The dog scampered out from under the blanket. Kelly pushed it away in time to see Winnie run out the door.

Good. She was going to attack the outlaw. Kelly jumped to her feet. She'd help her. Together, they'd send the robber flying. She ran after Winnie.

At first, she thought Winnie didn't need her help. The red-haired outlaw lay flat on his back in a patch of clover. Winnie stood on his stomach.

"Yay, Winnie!" Kelly shouted.

Then she saw that Winnie's tail was wagging. She was licking the outlaw's face. The outlaw was laughing.

Meet the Author

Linda Smith loved Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books when she was growing up on the prairies, and regularly pretended that she was a pioneer.
