Run time: 33 minutes
Narrated by Lisa Hicks
Jenny (Miri’s best friend from back in the day) has an adventure or misadventure on her own. It’s actually a rather terrifying one if you think about it too hard.
- The world of P.A.W.S. has many facets. This might be the one story in this rich world that didn’t quite line up. I know part was supposed to be fantasy and part modern New York City, but the fantasy part was interrupted by modern terminology like police and the normal world seemed interrupted by things like a market selling birds. Maybe I’m just crossing the worlds in my head.
- The slavery aspect of the book was odd. I guess that’s the part that doesn’t make much sense. If this kid lived in NYC, one would hope she had some street sense. Her loyalty is admirable but kinda dumb.
- As I said, P.A.W.S. is a very rich world, but I’m having a difficult time placing it. Much of it is flat-out geared to middle grade readers, but then it’ll mention an adult scene or depict a gory fight. Or, like this case, kind of casually have a child working as a slave cleaning bird cages. It’s neither good or bad, just bizarre.
- Narrator is decent.
- It’s nice to get a backstory for a very minor character.
If you’re a P.A.W.S. fan, you won’t want to miss this little extra. If you’re not, I’d suggest starting with the first book to form your own opinion, then delving into this one if you enjoy the first official book.
