The animals at Critters animal shelter all hope to be adopted, but never as much as at Christmas. Placido, the one-eyed Siamese cat, is adopted but with his sour attitude everybody expects him back in no time. Catherine, the retired greyhound, is adopted for Christmas and hopes that the adoption will last longer. Even Marshall, the king snake, is hoping for a young boy to understand him and want to hold him.
Kerr’s book is fun because it describes what goes on in the brains of animals, and gives them stories and personalities like real people. One critique of this book is that there are many characters and they can become difficult to keep track of. Still, if kids can keep track of the characters and the many storylines, they’ll enjoy this heartwarming seasonal book. Just don’t be surprised if they suddenly want to adopt a homeless animal.
