Sleepy kittens can be found in many places around the house, but never in their special box.

When these eponymous kitties "feel like napping," their search for the ideal spot takes them to many household settings--"always where they shouldn't be." Jill Leman provides a serviceable if undistinguished text for this feline foray; however, her verses don't always scan well, and a few rhymes are uneasy ("hat" with "lap"; "hearth" with "scarf"). Artistically, however, the book proves delicious. The radiant paintings by Martin Leman, with their clean lines, amusing groupings and brilliant palette, impart a particular vibrancy and bounce to the proceedings. Whether nestling "all over Granny's hat" or finding a temporary tabletop perch amid blue-and-white English pottery, this trio of tabbies makes naptime a beguiling occasion. Ages 3-up.

While a neatly phrased rhyme enumerates the places three differently colored kittens can be found napping (``Under Mommy's sewing,/All over Granny's hat,/Snuggling next to Fido,/Or across a cuddly lap''), boldly stylized illustrations depict them snoozing, ``but never in their special box,/They're always where they shouldn't be,/Even in my bed with me. Good night!'' For the youngest, the handsome compositions of solid areas of color varied by a few eyes and whiskers and an occasional patterned passage will serve as an intriguing puzzle as they find the kittens and learn to ``read'' the simple forms. Just right for a toddler's bedtime. (Picture book. 1-4) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
