A Five-Color Buick and a Blue-Eyed Cat Review by Nancy Wagner

By Phyllis Anderson Wood
Author House

This is an excellent book of the adventures of some high school kids in their first job transporting pets for a pet store chain. The book has no objectionable sexual content or violence and is just delightful reading. This is a revised 2006 edition; the book may have been originally written in the 1970s when Mrs. Wood was teaching high school in California.

This book is easy reading and does not have any intensity of emotions or turmoil beyond normal teen problems of getting a parent to agree to a plan of action.

While there is no mention of church or God, Christian values are evident in the interplay between the teens and their parents and each other. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to any teen looking for a fun, relaxing book with a few chuckles.
