Horn Book Review

Yoko gets a package all the way from Japan -- her grandparents have sent her a little doll (like Yoko, a cat) named Miki to enjoy while she awaits their upcoming visit. Miki once belonged to Yoko's mother and, before that, to Yoko's grandmother and great-grandmother. Mama forbids Yoko to bring the precious doll for show-and-tell, but the idea proves irresistible, and soon Miki finds herself being tossed around on the school bus by -- who else? -- the Franks, those trouble-making brothers. Of course Mama still loves Yoko, and luckily she knows of a doll hospital where they can take the scuffed and damaged Miki. When Yoko's grandparents finally arrive, they ask, "Who is that outside, scrubbing the steps, raking all the peach blossoms, and pulling up the weeds?" The last spread shows the Franks busy at work, Yoko and a good-as-new Miki at the window, tiny smiles on their faces. As in the previous books about Yoko, Wells's incorporation of traditional Japanese patterns in her mixed-media art adds color and interest, and her illustrations of Yoko speak volumes about the little kitten's emotional states. Yoko's fans will especially enjoy this story with its reassurance of love and its satisfying meting out of justice. jennifer m. brabander (c) Copyright 2010.
