KIRKUS REVIEW

One day while Mary Jane and her cat Daisy are playing hide-and-seek on the fenced-in apartment house roof, Daisy toars away after a moving object, and follows it down the narrow space between two buildings. Various agencies of the city participate in the nonsensical rescue of Daisy (who at least from the illustrations could have been more conveniently retrieved); the police, the fire department, SPCA, and water department succeed in damaging the building, to the landlord's distress, by first pouring water down the crevice, and finally by breaking down a wall. Mary Jane recovers her cat who is with the kitten she chased, and goes calmly on her way, after a brief session at the police court. In the author's colored illustrations, people have pencil-dot eyes and stereotyped expressions. An unexceptional book in all respects, the nonsense seems silly.
