Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Both easy readers follow the same basic plot: Doctor Glenda, a dog; Nurse Percy, a chicken; and penguin paramedics bring the patient into the emergency room. In the first story, a wolf is choking. Doctor Glenda carefully explains that something is caught in his throat and must be removed but Nurse Percy is cowering under the gurney. This is a smart chicken-afraid of a wolf. Doctor Glenda quickly convinces him that the wolf is their patient and that he should overcome his fear and help out. Careful readers will noticed the sheep dressed in red in the waiting room who has lost her grandma. The staff squeezes her out of the wolf's stomach, calls the police, and everyone lives happily ever after. In the next book, a spider is taken to the emergency room by Miss Muffet, a cat. The spider fell down the waterspout and cut her head. Miss Muffet is afraid of spiders, but she knows that she has to get help for her. Doctor and Nurse stitch up the spider's head and, in spite of her fear, Miss Muffet takes her home and offers her curds and whey. The books feature one to three sentences per page, and the illustrations are large, colorful, and funny. Supplemental purchases useful for beginning-reader enjoyment or as introductions to emergency-room procedures.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2013.

"Top-notch medical care in an equally terrific early reader that will appeal to preschoolers, new readers of all ages and anyone else who appreciates droll humor and an inventive plot." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2013

My 3 year old great ( and she is) granddaughter absolutely loves this book. We first found it at the library. Her dad read it to her the first night which was almost a month ago. I read the book, too. Then her Mommy read it to her, and so it went, night after night. This was a book that has been read to her every night since. When we realized how much she loved it, I found it here on Amazon. When it was time to return the library book, all was calm because she now has her own to keep. The book is brand new and was so inexspensive I was truly surprised. If your little one learned to sing The Itsy Bitsy Spider he or she will love this book. And if they don't know the song and the finger play, teach them and double their pleasure with the book.
I have never been disappointed in any book from Amazon as to condition and have saved a lot of money over the years.

As a daycare provider, I am always looking for enticing stories to match my theme for the week. Emergency for the letter E theme was so much fun with this book. The kids totally enjoyed this perspective since they know the basic story line. The illustrations lightened the mood as well. I also enjoy Urgency Emergency The Big Bad Wolf and would recommend both books.

To those of us who know the verse to the children's rhyme "The Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the water spout . . . " and the rhyme of "Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet . . ." , you will find this story very humorous and clever. Dosh Archer has created a story using the two main characters in these two rhymes. I recommend before reading this story , that you share the rhymes with your child so they are aware of the circumstances that brought the spider to the hospital and why it was a great sacrifice for Little Miss Muffet to agree to care for the Itsy Bitsy Spider.

Your child will enjoy the story and so will you. Dosh Archer did an excellent job combining the two rhymes into a delightful children's story.
