Horn Book Review

In this counting book, cat Frankie ostensibly works at a hardware store at night ("He empties one wastebasket...He cleans two counters," and so on), but the quasi-photorealistic digital art tells the truth (he upends the trash can, knocks things off the counters, etc.). The book passes quite pleasantly but would have been better served by a sharper ending. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
