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.
