Awards • Book-of-the-Month Children's Club Selection • International Reading Association (IRA) / Children's Book Council (CBC) Children's Choice • Junior Library Guild Selection Reviews Reviewed by: Booklist, The Horn Book Guide, The Reading Teacher, School Library Journal Review Excerpts: * "An energetic, cheerful addition to grammar lessons." --Booklist * "Using a fast-moving, quick-witted rhyming text. . . Comically crazy cats are drawn in a childlike style, adding to the book's giddy factor and making the subject matter appealing to students. Ruth Heller covered pronouns in Mine, All Mine: A Book of Pronouns (Puffin, 1999), but Cleary's style is definitely more active. . . A strong purchase for school or public libraries needing to update their 400s sections." -- School Library Journal * "The big-nosed cartoon grammar cats are back. . . The lesson may be beyond some young readers, but the energetic, humorous illustrations and bouncy rhymes are not." --The Horn Book Guide
