 From the author of the Anatole books, a simple story about a kitten who's sent away because his purrlessness seems rude; he asks several other animals in turn for help, finally learning how to wag his tail, which his small mistress (who obviously doesn't understand cats) accepts as thanks. A predictable story, with a repetitive pattern to suit the youngest. Lavish illustrations with nicely rendered landscapes and appealing animal characters. (Picture book. 2-6)
