Grade 1-3 The method of presentation cloys the information offeredhow to keep a pet kitten healthy and comfortable from acquistion to the point at which it can be neutered or spayed. The information is accurate, but the device chosen to convey it is a first -person narrative by a seven-year-old boy living on a farm in Vermont. Details about himself, his home and his family intrude on the intended instruction. A profusion of clear black-and-white photographs shows exactly what the boy is talking aboutfrom pan-training and feeding through visits to the veterinarian. The subject of kittens drives their fanciers goofy, which may account for the unfortunate last paragraph, which suggests that the kitten not only knows that it is loved, but that it knows it will be fed when its owner returns from any trip away. The uncloyed truth is that every cat accepts love as no more than its due and, right into old age, is certain that even the most enslaved owner will forget to set down the next meal. The world awaits a really straightforward book on kitten care. Lillian N. Gerhardt, "School Library Journal" -
