Editorial Reviews

Inis
The two youngest cats, Yellow Kitten and Blue Kitten are unleashed on an errand for the first time by their mother to post a letter in town. The journey becomes an epic adventure which brings them through forests, dark tunnels and nettle fields, up to a rocky ledge on the outskirts of town.

Unfamiliar with this new world around them, their minds waft around in the imagination of fear. Trolls, cat-bandits, cat-witches and eagles inhabit this terrain and still they put one foot in front of the other. Their fears are allayed when they meet their grandmother who refutes their claims of terror.

A smart and funny books for young readers, this book explores feelings of fear, stress, curiosity, courage and eventual empowerment.

Children's Literature
Two small kittens beg to be allowed to go the post office in town to mail a letter. Along the way, they imagine many scary possibilities of things that might be lurking around the corner. Young children may see a bit of themselves in these kittens as they worry about trolls, natural disasters, cat-bandits, getting lost, cat-witches, and scary heights. The surprise ending will delight readers. Imagination and children go together so well, and this is a fun example of the downside of imaginations run rampant. It could be adapted by the readers themselves, as they choose what would scare them on a walk to their post office. 2005, Child's Play Ltd, Ages 3 to 8.
