Booklist Review

Brownie leads her cat, Pearl, to the kitchen, where she takes out string cheese, an apple, saltines, and milk for lunch. Pearl plays with the cheese and rolls the apple. Brownie bites her cracker into a P shape. While she drinks milk from a glass, Pearl licks it from a saucer. The distinctive digital artwork uses bold lines, clearly defined shapes, and pleasing colors to create a homey setting for this likable duo. With short, simple lines of text in large type, this picture book will please beginning readers as well as younger fans of the Brownie & Pearl series.--Phelan, Caroly. Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Brownie and her cat, Pearl, are ready for lunch. They peer into the refrigerator, and Brownie selects some "stringy cheese." On the following page, Pearl is busy eating and playing with it. Next they find apples in a bowl on the counter, and Pearl rolls one on the floor. From the pantry Brownie chooses saltines and bites them into shapes: "P is for Pearl!" She pours milk into a glass for herself and into a dish for her pet. The book concludes, "Eat, eat. Drink, drink. Lick, lick. Yum." Biggs's vibrant illustrations fill out the spare text with details: Brownie's dress has an apple, pear, and orange pattern; the blue wallpaper has a citrus-slice pattern; and so on. While there is not much of a story, preschoolers will enjoy the friendship and older children may memorize the short, simple text to build pre-reading skills. A solid addition to the series.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
