Kidlit 2: Kitten's First Full Moon

Blogathon 2006

Kitten's First Full Moon is another of my favorite recent picture books. It tells the story of a young kitten who sees a big bowl of milk! In the sky! So she goes to try to find it and has all sorts of adventures, but ends up back home with her family and her real bowl of milk.

I love cats, but I tend to not like a lot of cat portrayals in popular art - they're too cutesy or cartoony. But this one wasn't. The lines of the drawings are simple but effective. Very nicely done. One caution: those of you with impressionable young kittens might want to be aware that the kitten in this book participates in some questionable activities, such as going outside alone and drinking milk. So you might want to be prepared to discuss these controversial issues if you decide to read this book to your cat.

Whoops you blogged about cats, and you know what that means. A big ol' table-breaking picture of Charlie!

This photo demonstrates the need to talk with them about the dangers of catnip.

Oh, how funny...discussing the controversial issues with your cat! I do have books to read to my cat, but she just looks at me funny when I try to read to her.

I do love this book. I've got an embarassing number of kid's books for someone who is never having kids. I like to take them apart and frame the art, which is probably sacrildge as a librarian.
