Booklist Review

From shoe shopping to playing dress-up to sharing a bedtime routine, Brownie and her cat, Pearl, enjoy gentle, everyday adventures. This time, the two are tooling around in a bright-pink (naturally) toy coupe. They are having so much fun that Pearl refuses to leave the passenger seat when they return home. Thankfully, some quick thinking and a can of tuna fish makes short work of the problem. Like the other titles in Rylant's series, this is more sketch than story, but the short, simple text is propelled by Biggs' dynamic, digitally rendered artwork, which has enough personality and verve to keep things rolling along.--McKulski, Kristen Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-Twelve-year-old art lover Claudia has few friends until she discovers a blue-eyed boy lurking inside a painting in her small town's museum. Listeners follow her dangerous, magical sojourn into a painting at the Chicago Art Institute to rescue her new pal, Pim. To free Pim from an evil witch's power, Claudia must travel behind canvases to steal the witch's unbreakable wooden staff. The fantasy world weaves through famous artwork by Rembrandt, Picasso, Dalí, and O'Keeffe and includes a visit with a surprisingly chatty Mona Lisa. Erin Moon's energetic narration includes a flippant bulldog and Dutch accents. Good sound quality, a great mystery, and an intriguing cover will encourage circulation. VERDICT A unique fantasy adventure. ["A conventional misfit-turned-hero tale elevated by an inspired concept": SLJ 12/15 review of the Feiwel & Friends book.]-Barbara Wysocki, Cora J.
