KIRKUS REVIEW

An orange kitten, tossed in a sack to the side of the road, hides in the trunk of a car as its occupants load a freshly cut Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. The kitten then creeps into the house with the tree, but the family’s dog proves less than welcoming. The little cat causes all sorts of trouble during the night, climbing the tree, dipping his paw into Santa’s milk, and playing with the ornaments. Santa sizes up the situation instantaneously and decides to take the kitten home with him to the North Pole. The story is a little wordy, but the oil paintings of the mischievous kitten will please any cat lover. Johnson varies her perspectives well, so the reader is looking at the kitten in a different way on every spread. Her illustrations are filled with glowing tones, the golden kitty, Christmas lights and ornaments, and welcoming lights in the windows. (Picture book. 4-7)
