This is a fun book about a kitten. It has a lively, rhyming and poetic narrative and adorable illustrations. It is short and will easily keep the attention of even the youngest of children.

We enjoyed reading this story together.

This book didn't keep the kids' attention, but they were fairly wound up. Not enough happens.
