The Underneath

Review by Mo
Tittle: The Underneath
Author: Kathi Appelt
Publisher: Atheneum books
Published: 2008

Quick Summary:
The Underneath is a story about a dog, a cat and two kittens. They live underneath a porch in the backwaters of a bayou. They have to live under the porch because otherwise, Gar-Face, the dog Ranger's owner, will use the cats as alligator bait. They live peacefully until one of the kittens ventures out from under the porch.

Personally, I did not like this book. I didn't even finish it. It was a boring story, written in an even more dull style. It was filled with too many details and written in a weird style. It flipped between the kittens, the dog, the bayou, the forest, Gar-Face, an ancient reptilian creature, her daughter, the alligator and the trees. It was tedious to read about all these different stories without caring about any of them or seeing how they all fit together. I don't recommend this book unless you like dull animal stories.
