7 word review:
Oona creates Zook stories with brother Freddy.
Share with ages 7-10. Stand-alone title. Different covers for hardbound and paperback (pictured).
It can seem that dogs are always featured in books, so this is a lovely realistic fiction tale for cat-lovers. Additional storylines include the challenges of not telling the whole truth (or omitting information) and the difficulty in accepting a widowed parent’s reentry into the world of dating, making this story accessible for many students. And for those who need to know if the cat dies: yes. Have tissues ready. Know that the ending is ultimately happy.
