Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat is a series of short stories for young children, portraying the various adventures two friends, the dog and cat in the title. Together they try and learn to fly, get trapped in a shed with a skunk during the rain, and eat sour apples by mistake, to name but a few of their lovely adventures. Though Calico prefers to laze around in comfort, Patchwork is far more adventurous and just can’t resist trying everything – most of which lands him in trouble. At the end of each...more

I really liked this book! I liked the way Patchwork always wanted to go on an adventure and Calico was a scaredy cat. All of the stories were good, but my favorite was Rain, Rain, Go Away because it had another animal in it; a skunk named Tom. I like animals a lot!

I think this book would be good for other kids to read because it has fun pictures. The stories are all good and Mrs. Greta asks questions at t...more
I previously read Greta’s book ‘Gerald and the Wee People’ and really enjoyed it, so when she asked me to proof her latest book, which was for children, I didn’t have to be asked twice. This book is written for early readers aged between 5 and 8. I don’t have children myself, so I can’t comment on how a child would react to them. I can say that I really like the book. The language is easy and flows well. The paragraphs are small and the storyline is easy to follow. It is deceptively simple thoug...more

Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat is good, wholesome story-telling with characters I found distinctive and appealing.

I strongly believe in simplicity of writing, that is writing for the reader and not the author. So the clear, direct, short sentences and plain language are lovely.

Not easy for an author to project characters, but I found myself developing a soft spot for Patchwork and Calico.

This is an action story and there is always something on the go. Nice work, author. The down-to-earth setting w...more

Well, not just for kids -- I like them, too! Patchy and Calico get into all sorts of trouble, but they always learn something. Great stories, great book series!

Boy, is this the best this author can do? I disagree with some other reviews here, I read this to my kids and they hated it... in fact, they asked me never to read it again. Poorly written book. Maybe I'll give this author another chance. I'll think about it! Not recommended at all.
