KIRKUS REVIEW

In a return engagement, Dolores and her amazing and talented-at-napping cat, Duncan, may indeed have met their match. As a known cat expert, Dolores’s dramatic show-and-tells in class demonstrate how brave, kind and helpful Duncan is. That is, until a new girl arrives and boasts about her Siamese kitten that has a pedigree, can meow seven different ways and is slender and elegant. Can Hillary and Harold outshine Dolores and Duncan on Pet Day? Can a diet slim down Duncan? Will Hillary’s papier-mâché maze of King Tut’s tomb catapult Harold to number one? Can two cats and two competitors become friends? Details in the charming illustrations enliven the characters, both female and feline, e.g. Dolores’s accessories of cat umbrella, leopard boots and cat purse. There’s no pussyfooting here, just fun (and hopefully more tales to come). (Picture book. 5-8)
