Here is something I learned this week if you ve recently read a book called Space Cats followed by another book called Ghost Cat it is really really hard not to check out a book called Ghost Dog Secrets when you see it on the library shelf I ve been a fan of Peg Kehret ever since I bought one of her junior fiction books Sisters Long Ago at a school book fair in the 90s Sisters Long Ago involves reincarnation past life regressions dog napping and the Egyptian sun god Ra I read it like six times as a kid Ghost Dog Secrets written a full twenty years later I am old old old involves a class project to assist the Humane Society two middle school boys efforts to rescue an abused dog an undead collie and the Egyptian sun god RaI m getting the sense that Kehret is big on animals and Egypt Or at least Ra I wonder how she got so into Egyptian theologyAnyway back to reviewing There are some authors that I just like and Peg Kehret is one of them I thought the main characters habit of talking in alliterative three word phrases eg baneful barbaric brat was kind of babyish and some of the dialogue sounded almost humorously scripted but whatever I liked the story and I loved how the book had the theme that young people have the power to change their communities for the better Like in this speech by the main character s teacher at the beginning of the book When we say somebody ought to do something we re wishing someone else would solve a problem but perhaps we are the ones who should take action Remember that you are the someone in the phrase Someone ought to do something about that Each of you Me too We are all the someone who needs to take actionIsn t that cool And to drive home the point Kehret includes instructions on the last page for how readers can knit cat blankets for animal shelters What a cool ladyIf you liked this book you might also like Standing Up to Mr O by Claudia Mills which is about a girl who protests her science class s dissection unit
