What is Maddy Mara’s Itty Bitty Kitty about?
Itty Bitty Kitty LOVES empty boxes, string and sleeping on clean washing. She HATES being called cute. She is almost a tiger, after all!
She may still be a kitten, but Itty Bitty is ready to take on the world. And she knows all the Cat Laws.
So when a family want to make Itty Bitty their pet, she is NOT HAPPY. Cats choose their humans, not the other way around! This is the very first Cat Law.
Join Itty Bitty on three epic adventures. Will she stick to the rules? Or will this kitty make up her own rules for life?
My review of Itty Bitty Kitty by Maddy Mara
Itty Bitty Kitty is a super sweet little collection of stories for newly independent readers. I thought the stories were fun, and I think kids will love the humour of looking at the human world from the perspective of a pet. I although think presenting the world from Itty Bitty Kitty’s perspective makes this one a perfect read for kids with new pets, to help with awareness of being gentle/mindful of how small and sometimes intimidated their critters might be.
The illustrations, by Noémie Geonet Landry, were perfect on this book – I loved the way they added to the story, and I really felt like Itty Bitty Kitty’s big brave spirit in a tiny kitty body was captured really well.
Big thanks to the team at Affirm books for sending this one our way!
