The Cat Came Back by Dixie Phillips and Lucy Robbins

 In this silly rhyming tale, young readers discover the misadventures that take place when a beloved cat goes missing and a color-blind father tries to find her.

Papa Sompolinsky goes off to work one night. Meanwhile, his anxious family has discovered Miss Mittens, their beloved cat, is missing. When Papa comes back to his van after his night shift is over, his color-blindness causes some confusion over what happened to Miss Mittens.

The Cat Came Back by Dixie Phillips and Lucy Robbins is a zany tale that will have readers chuckling over all the trouble caused by Papa’s color-blindness and the antics of Miss Mittens. What captures your attention right away is the unusual storyline. Even though a missing pet isn’t an odd thing to see in a children’s story, a color-blind dad and a mischievous cat causing the family a bit of anxiety is. While I had some reservations about how the authors would keep this a light and happy tale, they did a fine job in putting together a story that will definitely leave readers laughing, especially because of its surprise ending.

The lovely artwork by Laureen Caponigro is the perfect complement to this story. The soft, warm colors provide an enjoyable contrast to a vibrant story.  From the drop of sweat on Papa’s forehead to the clip in mamma’s hair and the teddy bear that goes nearly everywhere with the youngest sister, the attention to detail adds a great deal of life to this story.

Pet lovers are bound to enjoy The Cat Came Back.

Frankie’s Perfect Home by Beverly Stowe McClure

Frankie Armadillo’s house is too crowded. He’s sick and tired of pushing, swatting, and coughing his brothers’ body parts out of his way as he tries to sleep. So Frankie goes in search of the perfect home, not realizing that the perfect home is much closer than he thinks.

I’m familiar with the young adult books of Beverly Stowe McClure. I’ve read several of them–some contemporary, others historical. This is her first children’s picture book. When she asked me to review it, I hopped at the chance.

McClure’s ability to create characters I care about is what has always drawn me to her work. Could she accomplish that with a children’s book?


In Frankie’s Perfect Home young readers are treated to a delightful story that tackles the issue of the grass looking much greener on the other side of the hill. Frankie doesn’t like his home, so he leaves in search of something better–the perfect place to lay his head. Going from place to place, he finds there are problems with each potential new home: too muddy, too smelly, or too scary. In the end, he finds the perfect place, but it’s too lonesome and quiet. That is, until his mother and brothers move on in.

This is a great book for any time of day, but I think it would be really fun at bedtime. The colorful artwork provided by Alexander Morris has rounded edges, which is a smart match to complement the rounded text used throughout. Morris does a fine job of capturing the essence of the story with his illustrations.

Frankie’s Perfect Home is another fantastic title from Beverly Stowe McClure. I hope we’ll see her writing more books for this market soon.
