Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Tallulah the cat is back, this time playing school with her friends. She leads an alligator, a pig, a dog, and a penguin through roll call, storytime, snacks, and other typical activities. The gouache illustrations are busy and bright with fun thought balloons, newsprint, lots of colorful patterns and designs, and details that include 'Tallulah's Snackitty Crackers Recipe" and the rules for a game she calls "cat and mouse." Playing school with friends is such a standard childhood pastime that kids will delight in reading about how others do it, especially when the teacher is a spirited feline.—Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA

From Booklist

Tallulah the cat and her friends from Tallulah in the Kitchen (2005) are back. This time they are playing school, and Tallulah is the teacher because she "was born to teach." New student Nigel the penguin is welcomed, shown the class rules, and encouraged to participate in the daily routines—from roll call to counting exercises at the end of the day. Set off against brightly colored backdrops, the characters, which appear to be stuffed toys, are wearing colorful articles of clothing. There's a lot to catch the eye, yet the myriad colors and patterns work well together to create a sense of controlled chaos. The book is a sequence of classroom events rather than a dramatic story, but children will enjoy the pleasant familiarity of the school routines and the congenial feeling of a classrom where everyone is welcome. Enos, Randall

Format: Hardcover
The characters from the book In the Kitchen with Talluah are back! This time they are playing school. Talluah is a great teacher. She makes learning fun and makes everyone feel at home in her classroom!

The illustrations in this book are wonderful! They tease the imagination to see animals playing human roles. Also, the emotions of the animals seemed to be expressed through the style and colors of the background and the writing on the pages.

It's great for a back to school theme story time!
