Editorial Review

Praise for CAT FOUND"A gripping, fast-paced story full of appealingly raw emotion and youthful devotion....As with DOG LOST, the timeless feel and not-too-intense action should make this another favorite." -- BOOKLIST"There is genuine drama in Billy's predicament and in the plight of the stray cats, and the book raises some needed awareness of the complex problem of stray animal populations." -- BCCBPraise for DOG LOST"Much more than a breathless page-turner. It's a brutally honest novel depicting the world of dogfighting in a wicked light but tempering any scenes of cruelty with an entire community of positive characters. And Lee brings together her winning, motley cast, human and animal, for a wonderfully heart-rousing ending. I loved it." -- Ann M. Martin, author of A DOG'S LIFE"A tough book, a tender book, and one I shan't forget." -- Michael Morpurgo, author of WAR HORSE"A moving, fast-paced tale [that] will appeal to fans of SHILOH." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
