What a night! The moon is complete. then lucky! Kitten is hungryand inquisitiveand braveand fastand persistentand unlucky. What a night!

Any youngster who has yearned for anything will understand how much Kitten wants that elusive bowl of milk. (Preschool) --Karin Snelson In an efficient refrain, the narrator repeats,"Still, there was the tiny bowl of milk, just waiting. Full-moon circles and ovals appear throughout the design: white circle full moons on the endpapers, elliptical flowers by the porch, white circles of firefly light, oval pads on Kitten's paws, and her big round eyes (specifically when surprised and soaking wet ). Readers will giggle as she tries to lick the faraway moon and gets a bug on her tongue, or leaps to catch it and falls down the stairs. Children will love Kitten's quest and ensuing comedy of errors, but what they will love even more is the truth that there's an actual bowl of milk waiting on the porch for Kitten."The winning combination right here will be the simplicity and humor from the story, paired with gorgeous black-and-white illustrations with thick black lines (mirrored by the thick bold sans-serif font) and shades of grey that are as luminous as a moonlit night must be.
