KIRKUS REVIEW

Felines frolic in verse and pictures. A surfeit of kittens in playful poses fills the first two pages, between snippets of poetry about their antics, and both the pets and the poetry continue to play through subsequent pages. Flower pots, yarn, a friendly dog, the roof, each other—nothing and no one is safe from their antics: “Chasing toys that skip and skitter, trying out their kitty litter.” Eventually, they grow into calmer cats that protect the home from rodents and snuggle with their owner. Walker’s soft-focus acrylics perfectly capture the warmth and gentleness of kittens, and cover the entire feline repertoire. Meyers’s verse is similarly light and bouncy. Additionally, an abundance of white space in the design adds comforting calm. A sequel to the authors’ Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! (2005) that’s sure to delight. (Picture book. 2-6)
