Mrs. McTats can't help herself -- she loves kitties! When the stray cats in the neighborhood wander onto her doorstep, she can't resist. "I think I've got room for three more cats" she says, much to the dismay of her house cat, Abner, who observes this with much annoyance. Mrs. McTats names the 25 felines in alphabetical order, from Basil to Curly and Dolly to Earnest. With her house brimming with purrs and fur, she welcomes in another adorable stray -- but this time, it is a small, adorable puppy who needs a home.
This delightful story is told in rhymes, perfect for reading aloud. And the beautifully expressive watercolors add personality to the many cats, with Basil painted with tinges of green and Rosebud with a tint of pink. Youngsters will happily count the kitties on every page and point out the sullen Abner hiding here and there. With playful text and charming illustrations, this is a purr-fect treat for young readers. (Amy Barkat)
