KIRKUS REVIEW

 While a neatly phrased rhyme enumerates the places three differently colored kittens can be found napping (``Under Mommy's sewing,/All over Granny's hat,/Snuggling next to Fido,/Or across a cuddly lap''), boldly stylized illustrations depict them snoozing, ``but never in their special box,/They're always where they shouldn't be,/Even in my bed with me. Good night!'' For the youngest, the handsome compositions of solid areas of color varied by a few eyes and whiskers and an occasional patterned passage will serve as an intriguing puzzle as they find the kittens and learn to ``read'' the simple forms. Just right for a toddler's bedtime. (Picture book. 1-4)
