9780060272302: A Kitten's Year

Peeking, pawing, and pouncing, a curious kitten spends its first year exploring the sights, sounds, and smells of the world around it.

The simple text and exquisite, detailed illustrations in this beautiful book of months capture the cozy and distinctly feline moments of a kitten as it grows, season, by season, into a cat.

About the Author:

Nancy Raines Day is the author of The Lion's Whiskers: An Ethiopian Folktale (Scholastic), an ALA Pick of the Lists selection and New York Times Notable Book, illustrated by Ann Grifalconi. Ms. Day is a freelance writer who lives in northern California with her husband and two children.

Anne Mortimer is the author and illustrator of Bunny's Easter Egg and Pumpkin Cat. She has illustrated many other children's books, including Santa's Snow Cat by Sue Stainton, A Pussycat's Christmas by Margaret Wise Brown, and The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. She lives in southwest England.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this fast-forward frolic through a kitten's first year, the artwork's meticulous and decorative style offers a pleasing counterpoint to its young subject's liveliness. Day's (The Lion's Whiskers) supple text is essentially one sentence: "A kitten/ peeks at January,/ toys with February, / dreams December,/ and wakes up a cat." British illustrator Mortimer supplies the calendar kitten with a new pose each month. Her paintings contrast the fur's soft fluffiness with the crisp, often flattened precision of the flowers and foliage. In the May scene, two rolling kittens look up from a bed of daisies that at first seem to be on one level, almost like a swath of gift wrap. The outdoor and action scenes make this book more varied--if less precious--than Mortimer's previous Cats Sleep Anywhere, and the minimalist text centers on catlike verbs (tumbles, paws, chases, etc.). While the china-pretty artwork may appeal more to adults, children will appreciate the kitten's lifelike poses and its gradual progress toward cathood. Ages 4-9. (Jan.)
