A blessed event
Carlotta's kittens have arrived -- five adorable pink-nosed, silk-eared bundles of fur. But what a responsibility for the five male cats in the Club of Mysteries! It's their job not only to protect the kittens from the dangers of the world -- like the tough river rats and even tougher Steak Knife and his Over-the-Hill gang (and his collection of the tails of his victims) -- but also to teach them the skills every cat needs to survive. And hardest of all, find them good homes before they end up at the dreaded pound. The Club of Mysteries gang has a hard enough time figuring out the ways of the world for themselves -- how can they raise a littler of helpless kittens?

Carlotta's Kittens and the Club of Mysteries is Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's third book about the exploits of this bumbling, funny, and lovable feline club. She is the author of over one hundred books for young readers, including the thirteen-volume Alice series; the Shiloh trilogy, based on the 1992 Newbery Medal winner Shiloh; and, more recently, Walker's Crossing. Mrs. Naylor lives in Bethesda, Mary-land, with her husband, Rex.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-5-Another installment about the members of the Club of Mysteries, a group of cats that occasionally leave their comfortable homes to meet in an old garage for companionship and adventure. This time, Carlotta brings her five kittens to the clubhouse and asks her friends to help her protect them and teach them useful skills before they set out on their own. With no prior parenting experience, the other felines are put to the test with the handful of squirmy, hungry, and astoundingly adorable kittens. This story is filled with love, danger, and humor, and has a satisfying ending. These characters may, in fact, be cats, but each one will have a voice and a face in readers' minds. Even though they can converse with one another, humans cannot understand them, giving the book a realistic flavor. A few black-and-white illustrations show the endearing characters interacting. Similar to Dick King-Smith's Martin's Mice (Crown, 1988) and Bill Wallace's Upchuck and the Rotten Willy (Minstrel, 1998), this story will appeal to fans of animal tales.-Sharon R.
