This is a nice tale for pre-teens, probably four to eight years could read it.
A farm cat has five kittens and the smallest is a fluffy tabby girl. The others go to good homes but when a girl caled Ella would like Fluff, her parents don't want that. Then a boy comes to see the kitten but he really wants a snake or spider, so he tells Fluff that the big dog next door will eat her.

Poor Fluff runs away and the farm family cannot find her. She is lost and scared and has no food, and snow starts falli

In all honesty as an adult and able to read this book from an adult viewpoint I wasn't really able to get into the book. Cute, saccharine sweet and full of impossibilities it is the type of warm-feel-good type story that one hopes their child will come across and hopefully will keep their attention from other bad-type books.

The writing was simple and easy to read so that the youngest of readers who are into chapter books will find themselves with an easy read in hand. With slightly bigger font

Már a harmadik gyereknek olvasom, s még mindig szeretik. Hallgatni is, olvasni is (ezt már kisiskolásként).
Még jó néhányszor lesz alkalmam újraolvasni is :)

I read this book to my daughter as a bed time story. (The entire thing)

It was full of inner thoughts, reality, love and triumph. It shows especially how one can be picked on; or in big people terms become marginalized based off of physical appearances, family ties, and the injustice which society can support. It also touches the issue of homelessness, stereotyping and the idea of perseverance.

This book was so sad and happy. It's sort of like a mystery on what that brave but small cat named Fluff is going to do. There's also this girl named Ella who wants Fluff. the only time someone (Ella) wants her the persons parents wouldn't let her. Then finaly when her parents let her Fluff runs away because this boy named nathen treats Fluff like a pest. He would poke her make mean faces at her and he said that his neighbors german sheperd was going to have Fluff for breakfast. That just breaks ...more

I listened to the audiobook version of this book, and it was a good book for children, but it wasn't for me.

Most of the book is about the kitten, Fluff, suffering while looking for the little girl, Ella, that she had fallen in love with. I can't cope with animals being hurt or in pain, neglected or tortured, even fictionally, and the happy reunion at the end was not enough to make me feel better about everything that had happened.

The above is just my opinion and I do think it is a good book for
this was a small, cute book, about a kitten who was never bought in the market because of his tiny-ness... when he loses all faith, a nice girl comes by who really wants him, mom says no, a mean boy comes next, DOES NOT WANT HIM, but to teach him responsibility his mom's making him, when his mom and the owner go talk about payment, he hurts the kitten and she runs off.... now she is lost... and when the nice girl comes back because her parents decide, she wants him, so why not... they are too la ...more

In Lost in the Snow, the main character Fluff is the smallest and weakest of the liter of kittens at the farm. She surprises everyone with her energetic spirit. When it comes time for all the kittens to find a new home, nobody seems to want to take Fluff to their home. Something very sad happens with the encounter of Fluff and a little girl Ella. Fluff gives up on finding a home and leaves the farm into the world and becomes scared, lost and alone.

This story is about Fluff who is desperate to find a home of her own. Then Ella finds Fluff and begs her mom to keep her, but her mother is not so sure. I liked this book because the author did a good job expressing many different emotions in the text. I think young girls or any animal lover will enjoy reading this book.
2,5 *
Nem hagyhattam ezt az aranyos könyvet a könyvtárban! Ez a szomorú, esetlen kiscica a borítón azt mondta, hogy muszáj hazavinnem és elolvasnom. Sajnos nem tudok elleálni a cicáknak. Nem is számítottam nagy történetre, de azért Pamacs aranyosnak bizonyult! Ilyenkor még jobban akarok egy cicát én is, ahogy Ella is tette ezt a történetben! :)
