A belated birthday gift from my in-laws who visited Alaska and got to meet Libby Riddles, first woman to win the Iditarod. This is a fun little book about a cat who dreams it leads a team of dogs to win the Iditarod. It is based on Riddles' cat, Danger, and in real life it must have been a very brave and spunky kitty to be able to cope with 57 sled dogs!!! ;-> A nice little poem (if at times a bit awkward) and some cute illustrations round out a fun book that gives a glimpse into the sled dog ...more

Danger: The Dog Yard Cat
Fiction: picture story book. Rhyming, adventure
Riddles, Libby. Danger: The Dog Yard Cat. Illus by Shannon Cartwright. Paws IV Publishing, 1989, unp, primary.
In Danger: The Dog Yard Cat, follows a cat that dreams of leading a dog sled team so he can earn the respect of all the dogs. The style of the large print shown on each page is set within the creative water colored illustrations that are silly and are very stylized, which catches a child’s eye because it is adventuro
This book was okay. It was a little too much fiction for me based on what i had in mind when I read the title. I did like how much of the story rhymed like poetry. Which is odd since I don't really care for poetry.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun and entertaining read about a bold cat named Danger who dreams of leading a team of dogs. The rhyming narrative is quite fantastic, but it's interesting to learn more about Libby Riddles, the first woman to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. I love the photos at the end of the story, depicting Libby with her cat. The illustrations are colorful and complement the story nicely.

I read this book in the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport on my way back home after a long trip
Loved this book, loved Shelley Gill, who came to Schuchard and signed my book.
