Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6–The Carters are a close-knit and compassionate bunch. They run an urban wildlife rescue, which sets the stage for humorous adventures that play out amid other funny family situations. In this book, Halloween is approaching, and a young deer's curiosity has gotten the best of him, leaving him wandering through the neighborhood with a plastic pumpkin stuck on his head. Aiding the deer is central to the story, but it's actually one of several equally strong plot threads, which might prove a tad overwhelming for some slower readers. Still, the happy chaos is part of the book's appeal, and the characters are the biggest treat of all. From Grandma Alice, who decides to wear an emerald ring from her suitor on her toe, to little brother Razi, who dresses up as “Find-It Man” to locate a wayward family puppy, the cast is quirky, warm, and engaging. Stauffacher has done a neat job of making readers feel as though they have been invited in for a piece of Mrs. Carter's ginger cake and an afternoon of laughs. Lamont's light and lively cartoon art is the perfect complement to the storytelling. An entertaining, feel-good read.–Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR. (c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

The third Animal Rescue Team offering (following Gator on the Loose! 2010) finds 10-year-old Keisha Carter and her family attempting to assist a deer with a plastic pumpkin stuck on its head. Unfortunately, the buck eludes them, prompting the local media to suggest that the Carters aren’t up to the task and Keisha to involve her class in some scientific problem solving. Stauffacher’s intriguing characters (especially Keisha, her hyperactive brother Razi, and quirky grandma Alice) will have much appeal, as will a constant parade of sympathetic animals in distress. Recommend to series fans and animal lovers alike. Grades 3-5. --Kay Weisman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "Growing up is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much better to skip it and go from one childhood to another." So, I tried growing up and it didn't suit me as well as going from one childhood to another. Which is to say, that to write children's books is to stay in touch with childhood. Which is to say, it's not a bad thing to stay in touch with the child-like senses of wonder and delight.

So I think I will. My recently redone website will introduce young readers to my books and to my weblog about developing your own creative spirit and rekindling or nourishing your sense of wonder and delight.
