School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- Mr. Pusskins (S & S, 2006) and Emily are back, and life couldn't be better. Once a dour sourpuss, Mr. Pusskins is now a lovable, smiley cat, happy and secure in his affection for Emily-until the child comes home with a "fabulous surprise." Inside the cardboard box is a mischievous kitten who is intent on wreaking havoc and annoying Mr. Pusskins. In true "it's-so-unfair!" fashion, Emily cannot see that Little Whiskers is a little troublemaker. When she wrongfully accuses the older cat of playing the piano at an ungodly hour and banishes him to the cold backyard, it seems as if life couldn't get any worse. But a contrite Little Whiskers sets everything straight, and the three come together as a happy family. This second installment maintains all of the charm and humor of the first book. Readers unfamiliar with the prodigal Pusskins will lack the background knowledge to appreciate just how patient he is with the kitten but will find plenty to love about him all the same. The combination of bold colors, highly expressive characters, and slightly off-kilter illustrations will pull children in and keep them wanting more. Mr. Pusskins can take his place alongside Slinky Malinki, Jenny Linsky, and Samson the Church Cat as a fictional feline worthy of adoration.-Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA

Kirkus Reviews
Mr. Pusskins may have met his match in this amusing sequel to Mr. Pusskins: A Love Story (2007). Just when life couldn't be better, Emily tells her "dear" cat Mr. Pusskins she has a "fabulous surprise," which turns out to be a fetching white kitten named Little Whiskers. Emily assures Mr. Pusskins he and Little Whiskers will soon be friends and play "lovely" games together. Very disappointed, the dour Mr. Pusskins is hardly in the mood for games, but neither is Little Whiskers-she's busy diabolically disrupting everything in Mr. Pusskins's life. She blocks his TV, eats out of his dish, plays with his toys and interrupts his naps. She even tricks Emily into thinking Mr. Pusskins has caused a ruckus by dancing on the piano keys, leaving Mr. Pusskins banished in the snow and Little Whiskers comfy by the fire. Will they ever be pals? Hilarious cartoon-like illustrations expressively capture the full range of Mr. Pusskins's emotions: anticipation, dismay, irritation, disbelief, betrayal, fury and finally forgiveness. Feline fun. (Picture book. 4-8)

    Our favorite kitty is back!

    After borrowing this book from the library countless times, I bought Mr. Pusskins and Mr. Pusskins and Little Whiskers for a birthday gift for my six-year-old son. He was thrilled to be able to own his favorite books. He has them memorized and we often laugh about how much Mr. Pusskins reminds us of our own kitties in real life. Silly characters and writing with a sweet message.
