KIRKUS REVIEW

A homeless kitty seeking a catnap takes some unexpected side trips before settling down. Sometimes Boris would do anything for a place to snuggle for a long nap. When he finds an empty cardboard box, it seems the perfect snooze site so he dozes off. Suddenly Boris is sealed in the box, addressed, stamped and delivered to Lady Snootlethorpe, who’s shocked to find a cat instead of the teapot she ordered. Next, the box arrives at the North Pole where Mr. Marshmallow is disappointed to find a “silly cat” instead of the fish he ordered. When the box is shipped into outer space, Mister Gobbledeegook is angry to discover Boris instead of a remote-controlled space butterfly. All Boris wants is some peace and quiet, so when the box is delivered to Grandma Flapjack, Boris jumps out and lands on her comfy pillow where he can finally settle for his catnap. The crazy story line is magnified by zany mixed-media illustrations tracking the wacky feline-in-the-box and his surreal journey. An abundance of visual activity adds to the overall confusion and challenge of following Boris. (Picture book. 3-7)
