69. That Furball Puppy and Me
That Furball Puppy and Me by Carol and Bill Wallace
Second book in the Grey Cat Trilogy
Finished: Apr. 15, 2008
First Published: 1999
Genre: children fiction
"Ring ... Ring."
Reason for Reading: Read aloud to the 7yo. Next in the series
Comments: It is now winter and Grey continues to watch for the bird, Flea, to return but knows that he must wait until winter is over. Something strange is happening around the house and he hears the word 'grandkids' repeated often. Soon he founds out what that means and Grey experiences his first Christmas which has it's good points and it's bad points. But the worst thing of all is when the Mama opens her Christmas present and out pops a puppy. Grey is no longer the smallest pet in the house and somebody else is getting his tummy rubs. Grey is jealous and sets out to get the puppy out of the house. We enjoyed this second in the series. Not as much as the first but still a cute, fun story. The Wallace's books are a joy to read aloud and are wholesome stories to be enjoyed by all ages. We look forward to seeing Flea come back in the next book.
