Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Piccolo is a tough, self-assured tomcat who prowls the canals of Venice, scavenging "a bit of sardine or a scrap of cheese." His independent lifestyle is disrupted, however, the day two abandoned kittens decide to tag along after him. Piccolo at first tries to foist the mischievous creatures off on a neighborhood female cat, but he eventually comes to relish his role as surrogate father. Though Talley's frequently playful text conveys the worthwhile message that men can be nurturing, too, her story may strike some readers as tepid. Maeno's watercolors pleasantly detail life on the canals, with their gondolas, shimmering water and august stone buildings. The use of the Venetian setting to convey to youngsters an exotic, foreign flavor is a notable choice. But her depictions of the cats themselves, often shown in close-ups, appear somewhat flat and cartoony. Ages 5-9.

Review

Highly recommended. With its offbeat story and appealing visuals, this new release aims to "bust gender stereotypes" and show that papas can be as good as mamas when it comes to caring for young ones. Teachers and children's librarians will find a wealth of material in the teaching guide... --Video Rating Guide

Its watercolor illustrations...are absolutely delightful --Small Press Magazine

The lively, colorful, and expressive text is good for reading aloud. A lesson given with good humor and restraint. --School Library Journal
