School Library Journal - 04/01/2001 K-Gr 1-Another easy-to-read adventure about a fuzzy brown pup. When Biscuit meets two kittens, he wants to play with them, but the kittens are more interested in exploring on their own. However, when they chase a butterfly up a tree and become stuck on a branch, it is Biscuit's bark that results in a rescue. The large typeface, basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple plot are right on target for beginning readers. The soft watercolor illustrations, which feature a farm setting and a cast of appealing characters, help to convey the action of the text. A good choice for this pup's fans and for those ready to take the very first steps toward reading.-Wendy S.

Booklist - 11/01/2001 The latest book about the puppy Biscuit in the My First I Can Read series will lure readers with a simple text and bright pictures. Best of all, there’s a real story. Biscuit wants to make friends with two kittens, but they are busy with their own games--until they get stuck in a tree and need to be rescued. The pictures extend the words by showing exactly how Biscuit saves his friends, and children will enjoy hearing the story and talking about it as they begin to read the words for themselves. - Copyright 2001 Booklist.
