Praise for Katie and the Puppy Next Door

“Katie and Ruby and their kitty friends enjoy themselves; young readers will enjoy them too.” —Kirkus Reviews

“* Katie is the very picture of openheartedness, confusion and contrition, and readers will root for her from the very first page.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review on Katie Loves the Kittens

“Himmelman's charming watercolor-and-ink illustrations depict a character sure to earn the affection of young readers.” —School Library Journal on Katie Loves the Kittens
