Book Description Atheneum, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1994. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Color Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition. From Kirkus Reviews By the author of The Dragon Nanny (1988), a neatly plotted tale about one Junie Mae, a small girl who hopes, while making the rounds with Grandpa (an old-time country animal doctor), to get enough money to have a perm, like ``snooty Lucinda Bodine.'' Junie Mae's hopes are buoyed when she's given five kittens at Grandpa's first stop; but though she finds several takers, no one can pay for a kitten--except Lucinda. Suddenly, Junie Mae has a change of heart: she can't sell a kitten to Lucinda, who doesn't even care for her new bike; instead, she'll give them to those who want them. Unexpectedly, just like her Grandpa, she gets in trade not money but some other useful things, including a new hairdo, consisting of a stylish braid that makes her look ``positively eight.maybe nine.'' Dawson's expressively skewed perspectives, sly characterizations, and whimsical details give her illustrations a jaunty air that's right in the spirit of the good-humored narrative.
