The story started out very cute, and, having kittens, I can relate to the descriptions of Cherie's naughty escapades. However, the breakdown of the story into a fantasy spoiled it for me. If Cherie had fallen asleep and had a kitty dream, I would have accepted it better. The illustrations were so cute, but the story fell short with me.

It did not tame by little Naughty kitty but it is a cute story about a Naughty kitty who learns from other animlas that being nice might just be a more effective choice. The autor is a long time writer only not of childrens books.

So, what to say about this book. I guess if you are a cat person you will love this book. But basically this books is about a naughty cat who learns not to be naughty. Didn't Hate it, didn't love it...

I picked this up from the library for my five-year-old solely because it was by Joyce Carol Oates. As it turns out, I didn't like it that much, but my son loved it. Maybe he has better taste in literature than I do?

Little Cherie the kitten, doesn’t think she needs to be good, in fact she enjoys her naughty ways. Until, she meets the circus animals that pass her around playing naughty tricks on her. When she returns back to her family she is a kitten with manners.

Cute book, but I could do without the constant use of the cat's name.
