Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kate and her family have arrived in St. Joseph, Mo., to join a wagon train heading for Oregon. Kate finds a cat and is determined to keep it. She smuggles the animal aboard the family wagon and enlists the help of her irrepressible new friend Rosie. The action-packed, highly readable tale includes such hazards as a buffalo stampede, a perilous river crossing and a dangerous encounter with Indians. Throughout Kate and Rosie struggle to keep Snuggs a secret. When Snuggs is finally discovered, there is a surprising twist, and the story ends with the wagon train's arrival in Oregon. Readers of this well-paced, first-person narrative will want to know more about the three adventurers in this story; Kate, Rosie and Snuggs are memorable travelers of the Oregon trail. Ages 8-10. Nov.

    A Good Book

    This is a story about Kate, who was afraid that she was going to lose her cat (Snuggs) and was on her way to Oregon on a wagon train. she was scared because she thought that the captain and her parents were going to tell her that she could not have Snuggs. First she hid Snuggs in a box. Next she put her in her friend's wagon. Finally her parents said yes. I liked this book because it was about a cat and I like cats. I recommend this book for a person who likes cats.
