Horn Book Review

After lighthouse-keeper Pandora the cat rescues Seabold the dog from a bad storm, their friendship during his months of convalescence changes into a family relationship after he rescues three small mice. Though the story occasionally strays from sweet into saccharine and is somewhat mannered, it's deftly told; graphite illustrations suit the plot and mood well.
