Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Carlo, Mark's cat, is fed up with living in the boy's thoroughly messy room. After bumping into the cactus in the flowerpot where he has slept for the hundredth time, he decides to run away. He climbs a fire escape and springs through an open window into an elegant apartment. Here, a delighted little girl, Lisa, and her doting aunt make him a luxurious bed, feed him fancy treats, and allow him to nap on a satin sofa. But soon he becomes bored with too much tidiness and nothing to rummage through for surprises. He sneaks back home to Mark, who has cleaned his room and is waiting hopefully for his pet to return. A joyful reunion ensues. In a satisfying resolution to an appealing story, Lisa, who has followed Carlo, joins in the fun of trashing Mark's room but promises to come back the next day to help clean up. Large cartoon illustrations in acrylic depict the comfortable clutter and humor.—Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
