Gr 1–4—While most people carelessly assume that weasels are munching nuts and berries in the woods, they may be overlooking the vast hi-tech headquarters from which the creatures are plotting world domination. Dolan is the author/illustrator who's reporting the story here. With generous visual detail, she unveils the numerous characters, situations, and machinery involved in the conspiracy. Dozens of subplots and personalities crowd the pages. Patient readers will enjoy the monocled, Mao-jacketed, mouse-carrying leader; the robots and mad scientists; the enthusiast who insists, "I'm entirely confident that this huge drill will fix everything"; and the white-furred, blue-scarved weasel who brings around the coffee (weasels LOVE their coffee) and who unwittingly ruins, then revives, the evil scheme. Children who prefer a fast-moving plot or individual character development may find Dolan's book challenging. Those who take the time to explore the riot of sardonic cartoonery will be well rewarded.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
Weasels: cute, frolicking rodents or agents of world domination? Debut author-illustrator Dolan clearly demonstrates the latter in this zany story. The weasels, who all work in the control room of a world-domination machine, are five seconds away from their goal when something goes terribly wrong, and the machine breaks. What to do? In a furry flurry, the weasels scramble to find a solution. Did they try turning it off and turning it on again? Maybe if they had one more cup of coffee they could find a solution. Clever readers will know what the real problem is long before the distractible weasels figure it out, but that won’t stop kids from poring over each oversize spread to see what each nutty weasel is up to. Dolan ratchets up the already-silly premise with her cute, cartoony illustrations of industrious, big-eyed rodents scrambling over the page—up and around machines awash in knobs, levers, and reels. From the clever before-and-after endpapers to the satisfying concluding countdown, Weasels will tickle your funny bone. Preschool-Grade 1. --Sarah Hunter
