“[A] fast, fun, and rhythmical [series].”
Booklist Online

Booklist

“An energetic, cheerful addition to grammar lessons.” —Booklist

The Horn Book Guide

“The big-nosed cartoon grammar cats are back. . . The lesson may be beyond some young readers, but the energetic, humorous illustrations and bouncy rhymes are not.” —The Horn Book Guide

School Library Journal

“Using a fast-moving, quick-witted rhyming text. . . Comically crazy cats are drawn in a childlike style, adding to the book’s giddy factor and making the subject matter appealing to students. Ruth Heller covered pronouns in Mine, All Mine: A Book of Pronouns (Puffin, 1999), but Cleary’s style is definitely more active. . . A strong purchase for school or public libraries needing to update their 400s sections.” — School Library Journal
