Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 June 2002

Gr. 1-2. This Pets to the Rescue book in the Ready-to-Read series will grab new readers with its dramatic story. Dolores and her owner, Kyle, live happily together even though Dolores is a 'fraidy cat, who likes to sleep with the lights on. One night, she awakens Kyle, who discovers that instead of the room's being lit, it is dark--and full of smoke. Clements does a fine job of maintaining and ratcheting up the story's inherent tension. The doorknob falls off as Kyle tries to escape, and he passes out, only to be awakened by Delores once again. Then it seems that Dolores hasn't made it out of the house; she has--just barely. The color paintings aren't as exciting as the text, but they serve their purpose. It will take a pretty good new reader to handle this, but it's worth it. One caveat: this is billed as a true story. It might have been nice to have a shred of backup for the claim. ((Reviewed June 1 & 15, 2002)) Copyright 2002 Booklist Reviews

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2002 Fall

A cat savesáher owneráby waking him twice when he is overcome by smoke during a house fire. The story is simply written and the format is suited to veryáyoung readers. However, the watercolor illustrations are awkwardly posed, and in spite of the subtitle, there are no notes to indicate that the story is based on truth. Still, the subject has child appeal.
