PreSchool-Grade 1-A lift-the-flap counting book. The rhyming text flows smoothly and the foldout half-page flaps are cleverly used to introduce each kitten into the mix. "Nine naughty kittens find a cozy den-" then Mother Cat calls, "and then there are-TEN!" The cartoon illustrations are amusing and typify feline activities and interests. The cats have slightly different colors and markings, making them easy to tell apart. Paw prints on the endpapers add to the overall effect. One caveat is that the text implies that the kittens are siblings-as cat litters are rarely larger than five, this presents a minor credibility problem. However, this creative offering is a good selection for reading aloud.

Nine Naughty Kittens (42 pp.; $14.95; Oct.; 1-888444-62-2) A rhyming counting book launches nine boisterous kittens on a mission to reunite their family. One-line teasers appear with the current accumulation of kittens; lift-up half-pages reveal every newcomer's unlikely location, e.g., ``Five furry kittens find a pile of sticks/Jasper's sleeping under them, and then there are six.'' Jennings's rhymes carry the story forward, while Church's illustrations aptly demonstrate just how mischievous kittens can be. The positive message and endearing conclusion that reunites the kittens with their mother make this book a winner for members of the learning-to-count set, and for cat-lovers, as well.
