School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS The pictures carry the weight in this almost wordless domestic narrative. A kitten awakens and makes its way with single-minded purpose upstairs, into a room, onto a bed, where it pounces on a sleeping child who wakes up and greets the kitten joyfully. Tidy, stylized borders frame each scene with a dignity matching the kitten's, while shifts in perspective build a low-key sense of drama and movement. The figures are as lumpy as Michael Hague's, but the patterns, textures, and gentle colors balance this off with a charm of their own. It's a straightforward story with action, suspense, and a satisfying resolution, all geared to the youngest audience. The book's small format adds to the coziness of this pleasant piece.
