From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Katie Cobb is a fiesty protagonist who lives in New York City's Greenwich Village. Every Saturday, she has a regular schedule of things she loves to do. But one weekend, Katie's routine is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Jessica Jeanne, a neighbor's granddaughter who moves in on her turf. They become friends in the end, and it is this newfound relationship that makes KC's Saturdays so special. The first-person narrative is crisp, humorous, and chatty. Giff lures readers in through Katie's colorful monologue, which is best read aloud. Comical, cartoonlike illustrations playfully create Katie's city life in a picture-book format. Serious concerns about a young child roaming around New York City alone, the absence of parents, and Katie's "secret" (thumbsucking and her baby blanket souvenir which she carries in her pocket) are not addressed. The emphasis is on Katie's independence, which gives readers a vicarious romp through an interesting neighborhood with a new friend. --Marianne Pilla, Upper Dublin Public Library, Dresher, PA

From Publishers Weekly:

Saturday is Katie Cobb's favorite day. Every Saturday she gets up early and follows the same routine: play a game of checkers, then a game of jacks (Katie always wins); visit Mrs. Zelinsky for a sugar cookie; help Dexter, the handyman, paint the wall; sort the mail and tidy the desk for Charles, the doorman; and visit the grocer, John. But one Saturday, Katie discovers that somebody has beaten her to her favorite haunts: Jessica Jeanne, who is visiting her grandmother--Mrs. Zelinsky. At first Katie is outraged, but the two girls soon discover they have a lot in common. As in Today Was a Terrible Day , Giff humorously explores a child's world, deftly delineating the small incidents that are of consequence to youngsters. Remkiewicz's colorful, cartoony pictures provide winning commentary on a rollicking text. Ages 3-8.
