When Lee's cat--and bedtime playmate--disappears one night, he and his family search everywhere for her. To everyone's surprise, she returns weeks later with a litter of kittens. Well-chosen vocabulary and repetition of words, phrases, and sentence structure make the story a suitable choice for beginning readers. Cheerful illustrations provide effective visual reinforcement.Copyright 2000 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1999 November)
Gr 1-2-Three serviceable easy-readers. Repetitive phrases and picture clues make these titles accessible to children, while sophisticated vocabulary ("boastful") and the use of similes ("soft as silk") add interest and challenge. Each story has a simple plot (animals chase an egg as it rolls through the farmyard, a lost cat comes back with her new kittens, and a bragging kangaroo gets its comeuppance) and all three have large, bright, cartoon illustrations. A "Meet the Author" section inside the back cover is an added feature.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
