K-Gr 2-"Mr. Brown liked three things: ghost books, cheese, and cats." So, the man buys himself a bookstore that sells only scary stories and gets a cat (who also likes cheese) to keep him company. However, when the customers start seeing mice, they stop coming to the store. Mr. Brown sends his cat to catch the rodents, but instead, the clever feline comes up with a plan. When volumes mysteriously begin to fall off of the shelves, word gets around that the Black Cat Bookstore is haunted. The customers return, and Mr. Brown, the cat, and the book-pushing mice all live happily together. This clever story has an easy-to-read vocabulary and short chapters. Westcott's colorful and lively illustrations capture the tone of the text, and the artist's extra little touches (such as Mr. Brown's cat-patterned tie) will entertain children. While this book is aimed at newly independent readers, it will also make a fun read-aloud.-Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY
