Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria E. Gentle
It is kitten's first full moon. Kitten thinks the moon is a bowl of milk up in the sky. She tires to lick it but instead she ends up with bugs on her tongue. Then she tries to jump at it and falls. Poor kitten! She chases the bowl of milk through the garden and the fields to the edge of the lake, up a tree, and then she sees another, bigger bowl of milk, this time not up in the sky but down below. Everything kitten does to try to reach that bowl of milk does not end well. Ultimately, kitten returns home to find a bowl of milk waiting for her. Henkes does it again! His black-and-white illustrations, a throwback to earlier works in the field of children's books, are just delightful. You will want to go back and re-read Wanda Gag's Millions of Cats again after reading Kevin's work. These are simple, bold, and monochromatic, and they work. His use of white space is masterful. Everything comes together perfectly: illustrations, text, endpapers, and, of course, the cover. Children and adults will take to heart the message that in the midst of high adventure there is "warm milk" waiting for everyone at home. This Spanish translation is perfect. A must purchase by schools, libraries, and individuals who appreciate children's books.

It's very hard to find a book that is easy for a child to understand at 2 but also translated well and is a little challenging, has a message and is just a fun quick book. We love this book. We read it every night. My husband who is learning Spanish can even read it. I'm online now hoping this author has another book similar to this one.
