About the Author:

James Howe is the author of more than ninety books for young readers, including the modern classic Bunnicula and its highly popular sequels. In 2001, Howe published The Misfits, the story of four outcast seventh-graders who try to end name-calling in their school. The Misfits is now widely read and studied in middle schools throughout the country, and was the inspiration for the national movement known as No Name-Calling Week (NoNameCallingWeek.org), an event observed by thousands of middle and elementary schools annually. There are three companion novels to The Misfits: Totally Joe (2005), Addie on the Inside (2011), and Also Known as Elvis (2014). Howe’s many other books for children from preschool through teens frequently deal with the acceptance of difference and being true to oneself. Visit him online at JamesHowe.com.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-In this 12th adventure, Pinky is outvoted three to one when his family decides to get a pet. He conjures up a perfect plan to convince his father to change his vote from "cat" to "dog," but it is foiled when his sister convinces their parents to adopt one of the free kittens being given away in front of the supermarket. To everyone's surprise, the newcomer takes a liking to Pinky and he decides that he prefers a cat after all. As in the past, Howe delivers a realistic story with just the right amount of suspense and drama for the intended audience. While Rex plays a minor part here, children will still enjoy this tale of an everyday situation that appears to be a disaster until all dilemmas are resolved and life can go back to normal. Sweet's illustrations add the right touch to an ideal beginning chapter book.-Olga R. Kuharets, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC
