Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-The Black Cat Bookstore and Cobweb the cat are back, this time with the feline in the role of matchmaker for the kind and portly owner, Mr. Brown (who has the most fabulous neckties). Valentine's Day is near and the bookstore is jumping (titles like My Boo-tiful Ghost and Spooktacular Love Stories fly off the shelves). Prim Miss Button, sporting a jaunty ghost pin, is hired to help out. She's perfect for the job in every way: she likes ghosts, books about ghosts, cheese, cats- and Mr. Brown (and he likes her, too), so Cobweb and the bookstore's rambunctious mice team up to bring the shy duo together. Fans of The Bookstore Ghost (1998) and The Bookstore Burglar (2001, both Dutton) are already wise to the antics of the mischievous mice who are responsible for "haunting" the bookstore. New readers will enjoy making this discovery as they spy the critters slyly nudging books off shelves. LaRochelle (who did not illustrate the previous two "Bookstore" titles) adds just the right note of whimsy to the four short chapters of simple text with bright, cheerful, cleverly detailed cartoon drawings. A winsome addition to beginning-reader collections.

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Romance blooms in this third Dutton Easy Reader about Cobweb the cat and a bookstore that stocks only ghost books. After Mr. Brown announces a Valentine's Day sale on romance titles such as The Scary Date! and The Boo-tiful Ghost, the tiny shop swarms with shoppers. Suddenly Mr. Brown needs help. His "Help Wanted" sign is answered by Miss Button, the middle-aged woman of his dreams, who wears a ghost necklace and reveals that she loves cats, ghosts, and cheese (Mr. Brown and Cobweb dote on cheese). Unfortunately, Mr. Brown's shyness and Miss Button's primness stand in the way of true love--until Cobweb and the bookstore mice concoct a plan to bring them together. Like others in the series, this will serve as an easy transition to chapter books, with a simple story line, gentle humor, and a wealth of charmingly wacky pastel illustrations jollying up each page.
