    " I had fun reading the book but I think I liked Ginger Pye more. I was expecting more about Pinky, the cat, but it focused more around the owl. Anyways, not much to say about this book except it certainly was cute. I think I will buy it for cheap at Half Price or something. "

    " This was a delightful listen on a long car drive. Everybody liked it. The kid characters are interesting, and the animals funny. A great read for kids who like animal stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/26/2014

    " Cute story about a family's summer on Fire Island, where their father is supposed to be studying birds but hurts himself and is confined to the yard. Mr. Pye spends more time studying the antics the homeless kitten the family adopts. Everyone agrees that the kitten - Pinky Pye - is quite brilliant - especially as she learns to type. Other members of the family take over the bird-watching (that is, his daughter and the two cats) and they make a remarkable discovery in their attic!! At times this book was a little slow and I wished we could hurry up to the ending, but the twins enjoyed it! "

    " I Lovw this book too!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 1/11/2014

    " This is a cute book by one of our all-time favorite read-aloud authors. Rachel especially loved the little owl in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sriya | 1/11/2014

    " I love this book cause i love dogs "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/4/2014

    " This is the kind of book Lemony Snicket pokes fun at. The Pye family vacations in New England with their adorable and clever pets. I normally love Eleanor Estes, but this wasn't her strongest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 12/19/2013

    " I was looking for a book to keep my 8-year-old grandson interested in reading. This was a cute enough story, but I don't think it is adventure-filled enough for him. I see it was written in the 1950's -- I don't know if that has anything to do with it... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 12/11/2013

    " This book really captures the fun of an odd family on vacation, as well as the independence and thrill of a new kitten. The characters are strong enough that they could be written without the others and still be entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 kellie | 12/4/2013

    " Next book following Ginger Pye. Great, cute book! We loved it, but not quite as much as Ginger! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Library Lady | 11/12/2013

    " I know, I know, "Ginger Pye" won the Newbery. But the sequel, featuring a family trip to Fire Island and an amazing black kitten named Pinky is funnier, far more creative and altogether delightful. This is one of those books I re-read at least once a year! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen Gurri | 11/11/2013

    " I loved this book and it was a joy to read REAL sentences out loud. Kate lost interest after a few chapters. This surprised me a lot. I'm going to try again in the summer and pass the book on to Colin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Wilson | 10/26/2013

    " I am reading the children's books that I have around the house and deciding whether to donate them or hang on to them. My favorite Eleanor Estes was Rufus M., but I don't have a copy of that one. I got Pinky from the library books sale some years ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 10/18/2013

    " I loved this book. Like it's prequel, Ginger Pye, it's a feel-good book oriented towards younger children but I'd say that even an adult would find it worth their time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annika | 5/4/2013

    " It was a cute story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 3/5/2013

    " Such a charming book...wonderful read aloud for kids, even when they are old enough or can read it on their own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 12/27/2012

    " My daughter and I read this together and just loved it! Eleanor Estes wrote these in the early 20th century, but they are timeless and very fun to read out loud to your kids. Funny and witty, with a cute, wholesome storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaili | 5/26/2012

    " i also really really really liked this book too. although i read it when i was little, i still think it was a good book. i like books that tell about peoples lives and this was perfect! i love this book. i think it was just as good as gynger pie and should deserve a medal too :-p! "

    " Like its predecessor Ginger Pye, this book is ok but nothing amazing. The author had a cute idea, but her rambling style of writing frustrated me more than anything. "

Author Eleanor Estes

Eleanor Estes (1906–1988) grew up in West Haven, Connecticut, which she renamed Cranbury for her classic stories about the Moffat and Pye families. A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats—Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat—were Newbery Honorees, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses. She won the Newbery Medal for Ginger Pye.
