Booklist Review

K^-Gr. 2. As the first of four short chapters opens, Harry the kitten is happily eating applesauce while reminiscing about visiting his grandparents when he was little. His younger sister, Emily, is adamant that she does not like apples and is ambivalent about a proposed trip to visit Grandma and Grandpa. As the episodic tale continues, the two kittens go to their grandparents' home and orchard, where they pick apples, sort them, and even make a little mischief that is nicely resolved by their grandparents. It's refreshing that the story does not end with Emily recanting her strong opinions. Readers will sense her softening on the apple issue, perhaps, but she remains as feisty as ever. The illustrations, ink drawing with colorful washes, resemble children's art in their expressiveness as well as their simplicity. Another seasonal book about Harry and Emily, from the Holiday House Reader series. Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-In the first book, Skinny, a rabbit, and Fats, a pig, do everything together, from fishing to making marshmallow pie to building rockets. The three stories are funny, and the accompanying cartoons convey the humor of these situations. Although Meister's characters are engaging and are accepting of who they are, it is unfortunate that their names reflect their body types. Still, Skinny and Fats is a fun addition for beginning-reader collections. In the second title, two kittens are invited to spend the weekend with their grandparents picking apples and baking pies. Harry is excited, but Emily is less so as she thinks apples are "Yuck!" The four adventures from this weekend all revolve around apples. Ruelle's child-centered dialogue, gentle humor, and simple watercolor illustrations make this an ideal choice for readers not quite ready for chapter books.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR (c) Copyright 2010.
