Simultaneous.

Grade 3-6-Ten-year-old Megan spends an interesting summer as an intern for her uncle, Dr. Robert Taylor, a surgeon at the Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver. The characters of Uncle Bob and his colleagues are based on actual vets at the real 24-hour emergency hospital, and Denver bird-activist Katherine "Birdy" Hurlbutt makes a cameo appearance. Despite the fact that this short novel is based on the Animal Planet television series and the CIP indicates a nonfiction work, Marino fills the work with dialogue and observations reported by the fictional Megan, modeled after Dr. Taylor's niece. This TV tie-in will not be the place to glean factual information for reports, but it should find a home on the popular reading shelves where it will find an eager audience among the large corps of young veterinarian wanna-bes. Eight pages of black-and-white photos of the actual hospital's staff and clients are included.
