Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
PRAISE FOR Mittens: “The beautiful physical immediacy of the new pet story will draw emergent readers. Preschoolers will enjoy the kitten’s story, as they recognize how it feels to be a small creature in a giant world.”
Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
Nick has perhaps more help than he needs as he makes Halloween decorations. His kitty, Mittens' attempt at hanging up a cobweb ends with him covered in cobweb. Nick's spooky cookies look nice, but Mitten just makes a mess and ends up covered in cookie dough. He runs away from Nick's scolding, leaving cookie dough tracks behind him. But he gets to lick the dough off his coat. Then he goes to help Nick, who is hanging up a ghost to blow in the wind. But the ghost is not spooky and Nick cannot figure out how to make it scary. Mittens to the rescue! Like any cat watching something sway back and forth, Mitten attacks the ghostly shape. Rip! Mitten's claws shred the bottom half of the ghost into strips. Now the ghost is spooky. Part of the "I Can Read" series, this is a cute story of a little boy and his kitten, which will surely be read time and again. It has nice repetition of words and nice flow to it. Part of the "I Can Read/My First Reading" series. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
