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.”—
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Bored, Mittens the cat sets off to find his friend Max the dog. He looks near the house where he lives, in the doghouse where he sleeps, and on the porch where he eats, but Max is nowhere to be found. When Mittens hears the squeaks of his toy and runs back home, he finds Max there, ready to play. With one or two easy sentences in large print per page, this charming story is one that beginning readers will enjoy again and again, and the warm illustrations carry the sweet and playful story line to its surprising ending.—Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN
