About this title


A kitten named Russell wants to have an important job to do on the farm.

From Publishers Weekly:

An endearing feline hero, perched atop a tree stump on this picture book's jacket, fixes his audience with a disarmingly direct gaze. Little ones will readily take to this beleaguered protagonist and his "downright embarrassing" predicament: a nameless girl on a farm, it seems, has taken to wheeling Russell about in a doll buggy, dressing him in a baby bonnet and insisting on his thus prettified presence at afternoon teas. Russell has had it, and makes the rounds of the various animals, begging each of them, "I need an important job." The ensuing sequence of kid-pleasing repetition consists of each creature letting the frazzled feline know why he's not suited to any of their tasks. A stern Doberman, for example, announces, "You gotta have a mean look and a low growl to protect the farm." As he did in his illustrations for Grandpa's Song , Sneed employs skewed perspectives to excellent effect. His barnyard cast manages to be both lifelike and winningly human, without ever seeming self-conscious or cute. Russell himself makes a charmingly persistent foil on this farm excursion; youngsters will cheer when he finally wins his eponymous appellation. Ages 3-6.
