Julia Hoban's books for children include the I Can Read Books Buzby and Buzby to the Rescue, both illustrated by John Himmelman. An actress and playwright, Ms. Hoban lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- An easy-to-read, gentle story of a young cat sent off to find a job. Buzby is interested in being a mouser, but only until a big dog appears. When he thinks about applying for the job at the Buttercup Dairy, a big gray cat pushes him out of the way. While wandering around, he comes across a sign for a "busboy," and is sure that it's the job for him. There he helps an opera singer to sing again, and makes a sad king laugh, but he causes such a commotion that he is fired. The manager then finds Buzby a job that uses his talent for making people happy--he becomes the doorman, taking care of the hotel's guests. Himmelman's softly brushed illustrations complement the text and keep readers engaged. Buzby's persistence will inspire some, while others will enjoy the story for what it is: not very exciting but not too dull. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
