Review:

Richard, who's almost 6-years-old and wears "size seven suits" has finally convinced his mother that he's big enough to have a kitten. But after an over-zealous squeeze from visiting baby Norine, his new kitten, Mittens, sneaks off and disappears. Richard's father posts a notice in the morning paper: "Lost: black-and-gray tabby kitten. Child's pet. REWARD." The telephone begins to ring, and the doorbell repeatedly chimes, and an absurd array of pussycats is paraded by Richard's family. Not one of them is a gray and white tabby, and consequently, not one of them is Mittens. By day's end, Richard's hopes are dashed. But don't despair! Richard learns the importance of patience and perseverance, and baby Mittens is at last returned to his rightful owner.

Originally published in 1937, Mittens is a nostalgic tale that transcends the decades to charm a whole new generation of readers. It launched Caldecott Honor author/illustrator Clare Turlay Newberry's worldwide reputation as an illustrator of cats. And indeed, her kitten pictures are adorable, as are the other simple illustrations that accompany this irresistible story.
