Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-6. Exploring the instincts that domestic pets carry with them from their wild ancestors is one of the most engaging as well as one of the most beneficial aspects of these two books in the Pet Friends series. Because wild hamsters search for food in the early evening, for example, Gutman tells readers that that is the ideal time to feed their pet hamsters. Valid economic considerations are also weighed: after all, a large rabbit will cost more to maintain than a small one. Gutman's practical advice is laced with compassionate concerns for a pet's well-being as children are urged to show more attention to an aging cat that may no longer be as affectionate or playful as before but nonetheless continues to need love and care. Like Gutman's earlier series books on dog and bird care [BKL D 1 96], these informative titles make their content accessible through focused mini-chapters and Anne Canevari Green's delightful pen-and-ink cartoons that humorously portray animal characteristics. --Ellen Mandel"
