Displaying bravery and quick thinking, Pamela rises to the occasion again when she helps save her friend Martin after learning to call 9-1-1 in an emergency. Children are provided with an engaging role model as Pamela and her loyal cat Meow-Man figure out how to stay calm on the phone during a crisis and follow instructions until help arrives. This updated edition features a more multicultural approach in which children learn an inclusive view of the many people who can help them in difficult situations.


“Young readers of this exceptionally well-conceived and executed picture book will identify with Pamela and become better equipped to handle emergency 9-1-1 phone calls should the need ever arise.” —Children's Bookwatch
