KIRKUS REVIEW

Three mini-sequences, in an uninspired adaptation of the comic strip format. Brown starts with a cat's account of how his fussy former owners got rid of all their pets and settled down with the ""perfect"" one, a stuffed moose head. The last bit (you can't call it a story) is a sort of reversal of the first, featuring ""Frisbee the freeloader's dream"" with whom the other animals move in. And, on three double-page house cutaways that fall before, between, and behind the other two numbers, a family of monsters goes about its daffy rounds. Brown fills his studio-card-type cartoons with lots of black lines and dashes--which makes for fur on the animals, grain on the wood fence, etc., but can't cover up the pervasive vacuity of the project.
