Format: Hardcover

Rating:  1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3

What did you like about the book? The illustrations in this book are very cute! They are digital, and the big eyes on the kittens especially will pull in readers! There are a few dialogue bubbles to complement the narrative text. The storyline is also fun, with emergency kittens who come to the rescue to solve problems in a way that superheroes can’t. 

Anything you did not like about the book. There’s not much of a plot line. 

To whom would you recommend this book? Readers who love cats and other cute animals will definitely like this! Readers who would be interested in Chi’s Sweet Home or Babymouse series but aren’t ready for the length of book would likely enjoy this. 

Who should buy this book? Elementary school librarians, public librarians

Where would you shelve it? picture books

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
