Dear Tabby by Carolyn Crimi - ADVISABLE

Crimi, Carolyn Dear Tabby illustrated by David Roberts 32 pg. Harper Collins, 2011. PICTURE BOOK. $15.99. Despite being a longtime alley resident, Tabby D. Cat has a knack for helping fellow critters of Critterville. Letters written by a spoiled cat, an unhappy hound, a chatty parrot, an exhausted hamster, a disgruntled bear and a stinky skunk all have one thing in common: they desperately need advice from Tabby D. Cat. While Tabby dishes out advice can she find her own happiness as well?
This is cleverly created and kids will be amused by the issues and advice of the animals. The illustrations enhance the text and add humor to the story. The letter format of the book, the length of the book, and some of the humor may limit the audience to older grades. However, I think that young children would enjoy having this read to them. EL- ADVISABLE. Whitney. Library-Teacher.
