Read full description of the books:
I feel like such a stick in the mud for giving this otherwise charming book such a low score when almost everyone else gives it 5 stars. The illustrations are terrific and the humor is droll, but I have issues with the idea that Prudence leaves two of her "pets" (a tire and a shoe) in the junkyard because they will be "happier" there. So many real pets are abandoned each year in such a manner. This book reinforces the idea that it's perfectly fine to abandon your pets in the junkyard. It would have been simple enough to show her returning the tire and their shoe to their rightful places, perhaps showing a silly picture of her dad looking for his missing shoe or trying to drive the car with a missing tire.

Read information about the authorCathleen Daly is performer and writer who lives in the Bay Area outside San Francisco. Besides writing many little unintelligible notes to herself, she writes poetry, fiction and experimental theater. She has danced onstage with a cupcake attached to the top of her head with a single bobby-pin. Sometimes it fell off.
Her poetry has been published in a variety of journals and in Literary Mama, The Anthology. She's authored one chapbook of poetry, "Ode to the Unhinged". Her last show "How to be a Secret Agent Girl as Seen on American Television and in Movies" won Best of the SF Fringe Festival and was featured in the Women on the Way Festival. Her favorite part of the show, besides dancing with a cupcake on her head, was dressing up as a dirty old, lovesick pirate and swaggering around onstage in pantaloons. "Pantaloons" is a really great word, some other favorites are "pantsuit", "culottes", and "parka". Why does the garment industry have such a monopoly on great-sounding words? Anyway, The San Francisco Examiner called the show "a highly theatrical experience with profound flashes of meaning and delight. A free wheeling mélange of sketches, songs and dances combines razor-sharp satire with stylized visual panache".
