School Library Journal - 10/01/2016 PreS-Gr 1—Sisters Krissie and Kait love their rambunctious cat Crash. He lets them carry him and dress him up, and he always sleeps with them. But he has earned his name. He destroyed Kait's drum, Krissie's doll, and even a birthday cake. This story is a simple one to understand for those who adore their pets. The siblings love their cat unconditionally, and, of course, he redeems himself in the end. McPhail matches the short and sweet text with single-scene illustrations with a lot of white space to capture the action. This is a good addition to beginning reader collections even though it is formatted as a picture book. VERDICT Newly independent readers, cat lovers, and McPhail's many fans will enjoy Crash's antics.—Betsy Davison, Cortland Free Library, NY - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
