Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Lassie, come home!

Call me hypersensitive, tell me that it's me reading the stereotypes into the book and not Leonard writing them, but I felt I was in bed with some very old skeletons here.
MICHAEL ROSEN reviewing A Coyote's In The House by Elmore Leonard

I enjoyed Leonard's book without being unsettled by the observations that Rosen makes in this perceptively allusive review. But that's exactly what an intelligent well-written review should do - alert readers to the faultlines in a book that make it fall short of perfection. All books have these faultlines, so the question always has to be 'How many are there and how fundamental are they?'.
The Guardian should persuade Rosen to become its resident children's book reviewer.
