Read full description of the books:
This is a charming story of one kitty's adventure to rescue her favorite blankie. The drawings are detailed but not so much that it overbalances the simple elegance of the stripey protagonist. The language is simple and direct. Kittens of all reading levels should be able to follow along, and perhaps add their own embellishments and sound effects during the action scenes. This book is sure to appeal to anykitty with a favorite blankie, but be warned that the story may be too intense for some anxiety-prone kittens with blankie attachment issues. It may be advisable to snuggle your kitten up in her or his favorite blankie before you start reading, so that your kitten will have the comfort and reassurance of its proximity. This is also a cautionary tale for those who have been tempted to hop into a garbage can or even to conceal her or himself in a grocery bag destined for recycling.
One minor quibble that in no way detracts from the enjoyment of the story is that the protagonist Tabby, a tabby, describes herself as a patchwork kitty, just like her patchwork blankie. However, it is generally accepted that tortoiseshell and calico kitties are more accurate examples of patchwork patterning. My Sprocket felt great kinship for the patchwork blankie in the story because his piebald coat is similar to a patchwork blankie that was patched by someone who doesn't know how to sew.
Overall, this is a highly recommended addition to your kitten reading library.
