Mr. Pusskins. He has what you would call “cattitude.” His owner, Emily, takes great care of him. She brushes him, pets him and best of all, loves him. Mr. Pusskins could care less. He feels it is time to move on in this great big world, but I’m afraid things on the other side of the fence just aren’t what he would expect them to be. I love that Mr. Pusskins can dial home when he wants to but all he can do is meow. The illustrator has done a fabulous job of giving Mr. Pusskins personality. Staff picks 2009

PreS-Gr 1-Mr. Pusskins is a cantankerous cat who doesn't appreciate his young owner. When Emily lovingly coos, "what a handsome boy you are!" all he hears is "Blah-de-blah, blah, blah." Feeling smothered and yearning for some "naughty fun," he runs away. He wreaks havoc in neighborhood gardens, rummages through garbage cans, and hangs out with the notorious "Pesky Cat Gang." However, he soon tires of his new life. He regrets his ill treatment of Emily, and when they are finally reunited, he changes his ungrateful ways. Humorous illustrations capture this fluffy, ginger-colored sourpuss in all of his grouchy glory, and his big, round eyes convey a range of expressions, from haughtiness to remorse. This sassy love story will be a storytime hit.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
