Review Text

Nick welcomes his pet kitten, helping him overcome fear of his new home in this My First I Can Read entry. Skittish Mittens "zooms" behind the noisy TV, into the spooky dark under the sofa and, finally, under Nick's bed. There, amid the clutter of toys and a wayward sock, he finds "a small place just for him." But the kitten, still frightened, meows until Nick finds him, reassuring the pet gently until the last page's "Purrrrrr." Schaefer's necessarily brief text is crisp and cogent, integrating dialogue in an accessible manner for new readers. Hartung's simple illustrations use tones of yellow, blue, brick red and grey. Nick has a mop of curly black hair, and both he and Mittens, a tabby with white feet and chest, feature mere dots and dashes for eyes and brows. Ample white space and oversized type complete the package: a sweet, sturdy addition to the growing array of very first readers. (Easy reader. 4-6) (Kirkus Reviews)
