KIRKUS REVIEW

Mrs. Plucky's cupboards and closets were too overfilled to accommodate a sweater, illow a ball of yarn and a bowl. Neighbors Andy and Ellen consider her quite lucky when cat and her three kittens give these stray articles useful functions. But as the kittens grow, the house becomes too small for everyone, so, at Andy's and Ellen's suggestion, Mrs. Plucky holds an auction and empties her house of everything but the animals, her chair and herself. The farce is constructed around the ever popular chain reaction, but where this brand of humor can be quite successful, here senselessness outweighs cleverness leaving us ite disappointed, despite the comic attempts made by illustrator Jo Ann Stover.
