From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3?A nonsense book that features humorously cavorting cats illustrating alliterative words. These black-line and watercolor felines formerly appeared on ceramic mugs. Some phrases are entertaining and appropriate for a child learning the alphabet: Cats "telling tales" or "finding frogs" work. But others stretch to fit the template: "kicking kettles" or "verifying vertebrae" seem to appeal to verbal gymnasts rather than to kindergarteners, while "quarreling queens" jarringly violates the author's pattern. While this title might be useful as a model for older children who wish to create their own alliterative alphabet books, Maurice Sendak's Alligators All Around (HarperCollins, 1962) or Leonard Baskin's Hosie's Alphabet (Viking, 1972; o.p.) are better choices for inspiring youngsters.?Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA

From Publishers Weekly:

Hip-looking hep cats lift this larky book a notch above more conventional alphabet entries. All-white kitties with single-line smirks, tiny pointed ears and rounded limbs prance their jolly way through these gamely hued, multi-patterned pages (example: as the featured felines "nibble noodles" from red-and-white-striped dishes on a blue-checked tablecloth, one sports a green dotted shirt, the other a purple-striped creation, and the background consists of red curlicues against a yellow field). Practical and pert: nothing square here except the book's shape. Ages 2-4.
