KIRKUS REVIEW

Another of Hopkins' unsurprising anthologies, unremarkably illustrated with shimmering fine-line portraits of looming, large-eyed felines. The 24 short selections include a few familiar classics--T. S. Eliot's ""The Naming of Cats,"" May Swenson's ""Cat and the Weather,"" a William Carlos Williams' ""Poem""--plus two selections from our one real poet for children, Valerie Worth, and other variously familiar, variously predictable entries by the usual sources for such volumes: Eleanor Farjeon, Aileen Fisher, Hopkins himself, and so on. Acceptable.
