KIRKUS REVIEW

 From the team behind Two Cool Cows (1995) comes the sweet story of Henry, who wants nothing more than a cat for company. A disgruntled city fairy is struck by country dweller Henry's sincerity and is happy to help out. Kids will enjoy the fairy's humorous bumbles, as the wishes zoom through the air and words are caught in trees and bushes along the way. After several tries, the fairy comes up with a perfect--and unexpected--solution. Speed spins a comforting, old- fashioned tale, and Root's soft palette adds to the antiquated quality with amiable, expressive characters. A small book with a generous heart. (Picture book. 4-8)
