For a short little kid's book, this author crammed in every topic and cause she could manage: animal cruelty, oil spills, the environment, community awareness, religion, death, divorce, world peace, composting, you name it.

There are parts that are touching and charming, and I do like that PJ can communicate with the animals.

My Aunt bought me this book before it came out, with the art not final and mistakes still in it, as she is a librarian in Pennsylvania. I LOVED it! The unexpected twist at the end was a huge surprise to me. This was an overal great book.
