Reviews
"The lightheartedness of the art, full of clever details for astute readers to discover, puts a comforting spin on a more serious tale . . . Art and verse alternate between playful silliness and showing the sincere worry of a little girl learning to be gentle with her pet . . . Delightful reminder that having a pet differs from parenting 'a troop of teddy bears.'" --Kirkus

"Schachner, of Skippyjon Jones fame, matche sher rhyming stanzas with energetic illustrations filled with activity, bendy felines, and Beanie's unconventional flair." --Booklist

"Comical panels and lots of action keep the pet care lessons fun and kid-appropriate; seasoned feline caretakers will especially enjoy a spread where a leash-clad Stretchy teeters between stubbornly put-out and potentially homicidal . . . an enjoyable and educational romp with our favorite butterscotch boy." --BCCB
