From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K–Posy sometimes wonders aloud, âRufus, fat cat, what good are you?' The offended feline outlines his busy day, replete with numerous chores required to take care of his girl. He wakes Posy up, helps with her breakfast, guards the birdbath, exercises the chickens, and entertains the child when she comes home from school. As he says, It's all very hard work! that she couldn't possibly understand because she is a human. This simple, amusing story can be appreciated on a literal level, as a two-year-old would see it, or enjoyed by an older preschooler who will recognize the humor of Rufus's various explanations. The stylized acrylic cartoons are bright and colorful, clean and uncluttered. One jarring note is the set of human teeth that the artists give Rufus, but otherwise he's all feline and quite irresistible.–Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
