Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer TKono
"The Most Unusual Adventures of Black Shadow Smokey and the Blue Streak" by Suzan Tanner is a children's book. The story revolves around a cat and a dog that happen to live with the same family. Tempers clash as they both vie for their humans' attention. Later, they meet up with a common friend and rescue her from kleptomaniacs. Dubbed heroes, the cat and dog become friends and vow to be superheroes together.
There are many friendship themes in this book. Also, animals are discussed as intelligent and considerate. There is not too much action in the book, but there is just enough to entertain the target audience of six to ten year olds. There are also some sci- fi parts where scientists realize the animals can talk. Overall, this book is easy to follow and pleasant for younger ones.
