School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-- First published in New Zealand, this is the story of Annie, a child of a single mother, who is uprooted four times during her young life. Luckily, she has the company of her pet cat, Moon, to ease her through the tough times. The refrain, ``It isn't easy for a little cat to get used to a new home,'' is a soothing chant for Annie and for sympathetic readers as well. The full-color illustrations reveal the various crowded lifestyles and the unpleasantness that Annie, her mother, and her cat tolerate until they finally find a comfortable home with Annie's grandmother. The straightforward text conveys the emotions of relocating and adjusting to change. A reassuring work that might find a place in collections for its bibliotherapeutic value. --Marianne Pilla, Upper Dublin Public Library, Dresher, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
