Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miriam Chernick
Part of Scholastic's "Noodles" leveled reader series, No New Pets! is a Level 1 with about one hundred words. This story is told from the perspective of the family's pet dog, Noodles, who is very unhappy about having a new kitten in the house. Terribly jealous, Noodles tries to convince his owner of his own superiority: he is more clever, cuter, and more fun to play with than the kitten. And when the kitten tries to play with his Teddy, Noodles gets very annoyed. "I wish she would go away!" he says. But when a group of other dogs laughs at the kitten, Noodles is suddenly protective and defends her against them. Deciding she is not so bad after all, Noodles offers to let her play with his Teddy. The illustrations work well with the text, providing clues to the story. The animal expressions are fun, and we only see the human owners from the waist down. Any reader, but particularly dog and cat lovers, will enjoy this book. Reviewer: Miriam Chernick
