Horn Book Review

Mi casa es su casa. My home is your home. Tomás and Rosa welcome Flynn, a stray cat, with these words, but in their home, everyone must wear clothes at meals, sit on chairs, and wash their hands (or paws) before eating. The couple's insistence that Flynn mind his manners leads to a satisfying turnabout in the end. The text builds nicely on repetitive phrases and ideas, and the unadorned illustrations have a lot of appeal. From HORN BOOK Spring 2004, (c) Copyright 2010.
