K-Gr 1-Another easy-to-read adventure about a fuzzy brown pup. When Biscuit meets two kittens, he wants to play with them, but the kittens are more interested in exploring on their own. However, when they chase a butterfly up a tree and become stuck on a branch, it is Biscuit's bark that results in a rescue. The large typeface, basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple plot are right on target for beginning readers. The soft watercolor illustrations, which feature a farm setting and a cast of appealing characters, help to convey the action of the text. A good choice for this pup's fans and for those ready to take the very first steps toward reading.-Wendy S. Carroll, Montclair Cooperative School, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
