Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Four felines temporarily adopt a displaced puppy in Kitten for a Day (1974) by Ezra Jack Keats. "Next time let's all be puppies," he says to his friends when his mother comes to fetch him. Now, as ever, Keats's sunny illustrations reflect the joy of discovery. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this sweet romp of a picture book, a small puppy joins a group of kittens for a day of kitten play. Puppy tries everything�meowing, bathing himself and an acrobatic walk through the dining room�with limited success but great enjoyment. The illustrations are softly colored, but still manage to convey a sense of movement and adventure. The underlying message, that even animals that are different can get along, is a wonderful addition to an amusing story. 2002 (orig. 1974), Puffin/Penguin,
