9780140542370: My Cat Maisie (Picture Puffins)

Andrew is a little boy who has no one to play with, so he is overjoyed when a stray cat shows up at his house. But Maisie doesn't like Andrew's rough games, and she runs away. When Andrew tries to play with the dog next door, he gets a taste of his own medicine--and by the time Maisie returns, he's learned how important it is to be gentle with new friends. American Bookseller Pick of the Lists. Full-color illustrations.

From School Library Journal :

PreSchool-Grade 2-- When a stray cat shows up at Andrew's house, the boy is so delighted that he becomes overly excited. The cat, alarmed by the child's exuberance, takes off. Andrew follows and runs into the neighbor's playful dog, Lobo, who overpowers him just as the boy overpowered the cat. Andrew gets a second chance when the cat scratches at his window and he strokes her "gently, very very gently." Allen's simple picture book features a single line of action, no extraneous characters, concise but not bare-bones language, emotions with which children can identify, and a satisfying conclusion that also carries a nicely understated message. The illustrations are also successful. The characters are all expressively and sometimes humorously depicted; Allen's pen-and-ink and watercolor paintings convey a strong feeling of movement and action, and her use of white space for visual emphasis is especially effective. While not an essential purchase, this would be a worthwhile addition for most collections, and has potential for use in storytimes as well. --Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

From Kirkus Reviews :

The big boy next door has a big dog named Lobo, but Andrew has no one to play with. He welcomes a stray cat with altogether too much glee (``Let's play wild Indians and you can be the horse''); the cat bolts. A daunting attempt to play with the obstreperous Lobo gives Andrew a salutary taste of the cat's feelings; when she creeps back that night, he welcomes her gently and the two make friends. The message here is presented nicey in the events, which this prize-winning Australian conveys in a nicely compact text sparked with graphic words like ``gallumphed'' and in wonderfully expressive illustrations. Sturdy little Andrew is the image of his plump, comfortable mother, who has the same irrepressible gleam in her eye; his relentless activity is reiterated in each deftly observed posture. A perfect blend of text and pictures to make an entertaining story. (Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
