Poopsie the cat spends her days licking her paws and rubbing her ears and looking fluffy, until the pushy narrator of this story pressures her to do something a little less boring.

Will fluffy little Poopsie make it out of the jungle in one piece?

School Library Journal - 05/01/2022 PreS-Gr 3—Poopsie is an extremely pampered house cat. Unfortunately, the narrator finds that her behavior makes for a rather boring story and convinces her to go out the cat-flap and into the unknown. Poopsie must then gather her courage and survive the narrator's dangerous suggestions, which include multiple tigers and truly horrible obstacles. In her latest book, Harrison has created a wonderfully engaging tale using extremely simple vocabulary that even the littlest of learners should know, interactive and deadly questions clearly shown against the page, and inventive illustrations that add context and humor. While the text itself makes a comedic story, the pictures really do sell the narrator's interactions with Poopsie and add an extra element of comedy, setting up the surprise—the narrator/reader is the one egging Poopsie on—and providing clues for learners about what might happen next. VERDICT Disarming comedy from start to finish, this suspenseful tale will have children screaming at Poopsie to ignore anyone reading this aloud. Sublime.—Margaret Kennelly - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
