KIRKUS REVIEW

These ""Soft and Furry Board Books"" are a novelty sure to give a lot of pleasure to their intended audience. Each is die-cut in the shape of its naturally-round subject, with ears and paws making smooth bumps that will help little fingers to hold on to these seven-inch tall beasts; but the big tactile attraction is the guaranteed nontoxic furry coat each wears, an engaging printed face adding interest. Inside are a few simple facts about the animals, nicely illustrated with Demi's characteristic fine-line detail and bright color. Since there's nowhere for a pocket and this is sure to be nuzzled and chewed as well as loved, it's probably best for home collections; but libraries may find uses too, e.g., sharing with parent-attended toddler groups.
