Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- Tosca, of Tosca's Christmas (Dial, 1989), is now looking for a place to have her kittens. There seems to be no peace in the house or garden until her friend Roger, a large marmalade tom, helps her to find a quiet, comfortable place in the shed. Although aiming to be suspenseful, the uninspired text offers no surprises, and the mixture of natural animal behavior with human feelings and dialogue (``yuck, thought Tosca'') is jarring. The realistic paintings by the British miniaturist are so precise and finely textured that the fur appears real enough to stroke. But even these decorative illustrations encircled with delicate daisy-chain borders cannot redeem a less than satisfying story. --Caroline Ward, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY
