Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Sunita, a young volunteer at a veterinary clinic, finds herself caught up in frightening events as Hurricane Felix sweeps through her Pennsylvania town. Despite her fear of large dogs, she rises to the challenge of helping a Great Dane in danger of drowning in his kennel, and she braves a major flood to rescue a favorite cat. Through these experiences, Sunita also confronts an intense fear of deep water and an inability to swim, and finds she must profess these perceived weaknesses to her fellow volunteers at the clinic. The first-person, present-tense narrative may be a little confusing for the younger readers, but it does lend an immediacy to the story and makes it a unique read. Like the others in the "Wild at Heart" series, this provides excellent information about animals, and an inside look at a veterinary clinic. A short end section, in the form of a newspaper article from the clinic, gives concise advice on how to keep animals safe during emergencies. Overall, a very nice book, with characters that model excellent citizenship traits—bravery, friendship and community service. 2003 (Orig 2001), Gareth Stevens,

    "Excellent! Now burry it so we can do battle training." She waited for him to do so and then continued "Okay. Now try to stay on top of the snow and not sink while fighting me" she saw his expression and purred to herself, amused "Theres a trick to staying on top of the snow, but I think you can learn it for yourself. Now attack me." She order. "Try any thing you want, no claws. With this weather the medicine cats wont want more injuries on top of sick cats." She waited, her thin body not even breaking the snow as she stood waiting her apprentice's move.~Heathershine
