Kindergarten-Grade 3. Since its appearance in 1991, Hafner's "Molly and Emmett" series has been a highlight of Ladybug magazine. This delightful book offers children a chance to get better acquainted with the affectionate pair, a spirited young girl and her lovable, opinionated cat. The introduction, a note from Molly, explains the beginning of their friendship. What follows are 15 short, entertaining vignettes. While Hafner covers the usual seasonal events such as holidays, birthdays, and summer vacation, there are also interesting treatments of ordinary activities such as taking vitamins, visiting non-cat-loving relatives, buying school supplies, graciously receiving an unwanted gift, and having a bad dream. Each story shows sensitivity to important events and emotions in a young child's life. Each page bustles with action, illustrated in Hafner's brightly colored, comic-strip style, with the story told completely in dialogue balloons. Children will experience the same sense of intimacy one feels when viewing a friend's family album for the first time, and will return to these episodes again and again.?Lisa S.

Anyone who has witnessed a child chuckling over the last page of Ladybug magazine will relish the arrival of plucky Molly and her sidekick cat, Emmett, in their picture book debut of 15 brand-new comedies. In familiar storyboard panels complete with dialogue balloons, Molly and Emmett tear through the seasons in one humorous adventure after another. Children will readily recognize themselves in the impish misbehavior of Emmett, who is not only Molly's constant companion but something of an alter ego as well. His imagination often outstrips his courage--he pictures himself as a daring acrobat at the circus, but in reality, he needs help climbing down from the branch of a tree. At Uncle Edward's house, he breaks all the rules for cats, and his passion for fish continually gets him into one scrape or another. The understated humor never fails to deliver satisfaction by the final frame of the cartoon. Hafner takes the comic-book form to new heights with her colorful and expressive watercolors of this inimitable pair. (Picture book. 2-7) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
