Julia Hoban's books for children include the I Can Read Books Buzby and Buzby to the Rescue, both illustrated by John Himmelman. An actress and playwright, Ms. Hoban lives in New York City.
PreSchool-Grade 3-When big movie star Serena Lovejoy (a chic chicken) visits the hotel where Buzby (a cute cat) works, she sweeps in with tons of luggage and a jewelry case full of gems, which she insists on keeping with her at all times. When Buzby overhears two guests (an alligator and a mouse) talking about "getting it" he surmises that they are up to no good. And when her royal ruby disappears, he is sure he has identified the thieves. The shady looking pair turn out to be autograph seekers, and Buzby's love of cream (even if it is "cold cream") helps him uncover the missing jewel. Himmelman's watercolors add humor and provide clues to help children through the smoothly written text. An engaging mystery that is sure to delight emerging readers.
