Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5--In this sequel to Melvil and Dewey in the Chips (Shoe Tree Pr, 1986; o.p.), two classroom gerbils have a series of mishaps when the teacher allows students to take them home on weekends. Six chapters of uniform length are each complemented by a few humorous black-and-white drawings. Children who have the opportunity to check out their school or public library pets (often gerbils like Melvil and Dew ey) will especially enjoy this funny, fast-paced adventure. And because of this book, real-life visiting library pets may be spared such perils as Melvil and Dewey's contact with too-eager youn ger siblings or a hungry snake during their visits with families. Swallow is an author to keep an eye on.--Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
