What toddler can resist a playful kitten or a wiggly puppy? Here is a board book with the simplest of texts and fresh, beguiling illustrations.
A wide-eyed kitten wends her way through the wilds of a backyard, poking, leaping, stretching, snoozing, and purring along the way. Her reward at the end, of course, is a gentle pat from a little friend and a giant hug.
