Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3

Two beginning chapter books with lively story lines and brightly colored cartoon illustrations. In the first book, the Flying Fur Balls hire Pete, a small but talented feline, for their acro-cat act. His skill and daring help draw enthusiastic crowds until his tail catches on fire when he is blown out of a cannon. Amazingly, he removes his cat suit and reveals that he is really a mouse. The audience boos and threatens to eat him. His fellow Fur Balls protect Pete and admonish the crowd. Ultimately, he gets a new costume and performs under a new cat alias. In the second title, Princess Mina's request for a pet is denied because of mess, smell, and unwanted fur. Mina finds this illogical as her teenage sister sits "slumped...in the middle of a pile of magazines and half-empty mugs." Mina sends a text message to her fairy godmother, and soon the castle is full of animals. She asks for a spell "to take away the pets" but the responding spell "to take away the pests" transforms the attitudes of the adults, and turns her sister into a frog. Treat readers to these fun-filled selections.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
