Kitty can't resist. Before the dog can say “Bark!” she's out the window and into the wide world. But what will she do when she can't find her way home?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K

A kitten's day is full of discoveries and adventures, dreams and surprises. This blue-eyed, rosy-cheeked scamp's inexhaustible energy is evident from page one. While text such as "Kitty up./Kitty down./Kitty square./Kitty round" is less-than-compelling narrative, Yoshikawa's acrylic and pastel illustrations provide more than their share of drama and detail. Each page is infused with bright colors, angled perspectives, and a lot of fun touches. Kitty's constant motion is balanced by a big, furry dog whose slower pace and watchful eye ensures that the youngster's enthusiasm doesn't lead her into danger. When the book finishes on "Kitty lucky./Kitty friend./Kitty home./Kitty end," the satisfaction is immense as the cat and dog snuggle up in front of the fire not so much for a nap, but for an intermission in the chaos. Readers will be able to milk plenty of expression out of the meager text simply by following the cues in the pictures. Pair this with Emily Gravett's Orange Pear Apple Bear (S & S, 2007) for a lap-sit with children who need an intermission of their own.-Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA

Kirkus Reviews
"Kitty fast. / Kitty slow. / Kitty stop. / Kitty go!" Kitty starts moving on the cover and does not settle down until the end of the book, her busyness doubtlessly recognizable to preschoolers and their adults alike. Her cozy adventures take her into the yard, where she is woken from a nap by a sudden thunderstorm; disoriented, she panics before following her ears back home. The two-word rhyming pattern repeats predictably in a fashion that will please young children and allow them to "read" along. This repetition of couplets can also show older readers a format that they can adapt to their own writing. Yoshikawa's vibrant acrylic-and-pastel illustrations render both the actions and animals in gentle curves, flowing from sequences of panels to double-page spreads seamlessly in visual support of the text. The suburban setting will be familiar to many children, and the adventure's end makes this a comforting tale, especially at bedtime. (Picture book. 2-6)
