Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Completed by Merriam's (Ten Rosy Roses) editor Pollack after Merriam's death, this bouncy picture book finds a feline leading her young owner on a merry chase. "Jitterbugs, Jitterbugs glides out the door,/ onto the road--he's far away,/ looking for a place to play." The rhyming text follows the escapades of cat and girl and pulls readers along by the momentum of the chase as well as a series of riddles as to the pet's whereabouts. "What's white and runs along the grass?" is answered by a turn of the page: "Jitterbugs, Jitterbugs climbs up the fence." The closing lines bring readers back to the beginning: "Where's the very best place you can be?" The answer: "Back home," where there are "hugs to share" and "purring, purring everywhere." Harrison's uncluttered, crisp watercolors generate a sense of activity by alternating cropped panels with larger views as the two venture into the wide world. She also extends the guessing game with visual clues--a glimpse of a tail or a pair of paws--that help solve the riddles. Ages 3-7. (Oct.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Jitterbugs is a cat on the move. He sneaks out of the house and leads a little girl on a merry chase around town before coming home to settle in his favorite spot, her lap. A series of riddles is incorporated into the rhyming text, which was completed by Pollack after Merriam's death. While the visual clues are clearly depicted, the answers, which do not rhyme, are sometimes tricky to guess. For example, "Besides the grass so soft and sweet,/what's hard and dry beneath our feet?" Readers may well expect the answer to be "street," rather than "Jitterbugs, Jitterbugs runs down the road." Harrison's watercolors are sweet but not cloying. The layout, often with several illustrations in boxes on one page, makes this title best suited to individual reading and one-on-one sharing. For a more satisfying guessing game, stick with Deborah Guarino's Is Your Mama a Llama?

Kirkus Reviews
The late poet's long-time editor completed this puzzle book about Jitterbugs, a tiger-striped cat who leads a girl on a merry chase out the door and around the neighborhood. "What squeaks open and makes a breeze?" asks the text, and the watercolor panel beneath shows readers the exiting cat; the answer also appearing in text at the top of the following page: "Jitterbugs, Jitterbugs glides out the door." Typographics make the most of action words and aid incidentally in building readers' vocabularies and sensitivity to language. Similar puzzles ask what's white and edges the grass or "What's ticklish, green, and smells like spring?" with the answers—a fence, the grass—immediately following. But the big question remains—"Where's that cat?"—for Jitterbugs runs like greased lightning, once even chasing the girl who is chasing him. All ends happily back at home, where it is time for a nap for the girl and the cat. A pleasant poetic excursion into the mildest of mysteries of which the outcome is never in doubt, but which will nonetheless entice listeners into following the clues. An excellent read-aloud. (Picture book. 3-7)
