Editorial Reviews


Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
"The Cheetah and the Dog by Patricia Furstenberg, like herother animal story books, is inspired by the real life story of Kasi the cheetah and Mtani the Labrador dog and their friendship. The storygives insight on the importance of friendship. Kasi and Mtani meet byaccident one hot day on Africa's wild plains. Though they both lookeddifferent, they liked to chase each other and hide in the dust. One daywhile playing, they see a rabbit and they decide to run after therabbit. Later they realize hunting can become boring and it is best toplay and explore.

The author discusses the topic of friendship through this story, andtells readers how friendship can be fun and it is not about color, race, caste, and creed. The concept of the book extends to young and oldalike. Friendship has no boundaries and the author encourages readers to be like Kasi and Mtani, just smile and care. The rhyming verses givethe story a good pace and movement and introduce young children torhyming words and how these can be used while writing poems. Theillustrations are wonderful and make the story vivid and the conceptclear. The story is refreshing and delightful and Kasi and Mtani willwin the hearts of all young readers with their remarkable friendshipthat transcends all boundaries. It is a good book for bedtimestorytelling and is good for read aloud sessions in classrooms as ithandles a relevant topic which is important to everyone."

From the Author

I've often watched my parents interact with my children and noticed,with amazement, that special bond between them everyone talks about. It is an invisible string that makes them smile as soon as they lay eyes on each other and it pulls them together in a fun activity filled with laughterand giggles.

My mother is the one they would want for pretendgames, yet it is my father they prefer for story time. Perhaps becausegrandfathers, with their solid appearance, are nothing but gentle giantswhen it comes to their own grandchildren and, admit it,nothing cancompare with a grandfather's ability to mimic someone else's voice!

I still remember my own grandfather telling my cousin and I a story with Prince Charming which used to pick his nose :)

I hope you will enjoy my books just as much as I loved writing them.
