The limited vocabulary used by Kristen Depken makes this story just right for readers who are just starting out—or for very young children learning to settle down for story time. Beautiful illustrations by Sue DiCicco conjure up all the charm of the original artwork by Gustaf Tenggren. The appeal of the original story by Cathleen Schurr remains intact, and this happy tale of a cute little kitten and its barnyard friends is sure to captivate a new generation of readers.
