KIRKUS REVIEW

He's called Socks because of his white paws, and this is his kitten's eye view of his early life with a young college couple. The first change in his status occurs when Mrs. Bricker's lap begins to grow smaller; then she goes away (to the hospital) and returns with a "new pet" who displaces Socks and causes him all sorts of consternation. In the end Socks and the newcomer -- young Charles William Bricker -- make friends (and together make a mess of the nursery), but as cats suffering from sibling rivalry can't read, Socks' appeal will be limited to those humans who talk baby-talk to animals.
