Praise For…

"This is a fun and engaging read-aloud for young children. And they don’t even have to be cat lovers!" —School Library Journal on Pretty Kitty

"The amusing illustrations of popular animals and the jaunty rhythm and rhyme will make this a favorite." —Kirkus Reviews on Who Ate All the Cookie Dough?
