Friends for Calico


Wilson, Karma. 2008. Friends for Calico.

Calico is a cat. And she's pretty adorable, I must admit. There seem to be four books in the Calico series so far: Hello, Calico!, Uh-oh, Calico!, Friends for Calico, and Play Nice, Calico!. I've only received Friends for Calico and Play Nice, Calico!

With bright illustrations by Buket Erdogan, Calico's playful adventures unfold. In this one, Calico is on the hunt for her missing teddy bear.

A kitty cat named Calico
is searching high and searching low.
She's peeking here, she's peeking there.
She's lost her favorite teddy bear.

During her hunt, she meets new animals and makes some new friends.

Here's how she meets Scruff the dog.

What's that fur
beneath the chair?
Could that be her teddy bear?

She grabs the fur
and hears,
"Ruff, ruff!"
She's scared the fuzzy
puppy, Scruff.

Anyway, I won't spoil this one for anyone. (Will she find him? Will she???) But it was a fun little book.
