Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Two mischievous kittens cavort around their yard and create hilarious havoc in this bouncy tribute to feline exuberance. Taking advantage of an open door and preoccupied owners, the cats jump from garden to tree to pool to doghouse, always getting into enough trouble to necessitate an expeditious escape to the refrain of "CAT SKIDOO!" A final leap from a pursuing dog to the safety of the house brings the now-exhausted pair to pleasant dreams of their rascally behavior. Roberts's rollicking verses are echoed in Alley's colorful ink, pen, and watercolor cartoons. Featuring plenty of white space and lending a sense of nonstop motion, the art is filled with details of the felines' antics. Perfect for group sharing and participation or one-on-one reading, this amusing adventure will be welcome in most collections.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. In this amusing picture book, two boisterous kittens scamper about the house and explore the yard before returning home for milk and a nap. Roberts' rhythmic, rhyming text sets a cheerful tone and gives plenty of scope for the action and comedy in the appealing illustrations. Brightened with watercolor washes, Alley's lively ink drawings make the most of the kittens' innocent curiosity and playful high jinks, giving children lots of visual action to enjoy as the simple story rolls along. Fun for reading aloud. Carolyn Phelan

By E. S. Will on May 25, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Two kittens mean double the trouble in this fun "rumble-tumble" of a book. The series of boisterous verses each end with the "skidoo" refrain:
Helter-skelter,
roll and bounce.
Skitter, scatter,
leap and pounce!
Kittens in the green grass-
one cat, two.
Here comes Dog, so ...
CAT SKIDOO!
The high-energy drawings-done in pen and ink and watercolors-catch the rambunctious kittens as they roll with a ball, climb a tree, create havoc in general and finally-curl up in their naptime basket.
"Cat Skidoo" delights in kitten antics to entertain and amuse the young of heart.

Cat Skidoo is a delightful book for preschoolers. The little mischievious kittens are adorable. They have quite a knack for getting into some scrapes. However, they way they get from one scrape to another is also funny. I would like to see this as a cartoon, so entertaining and one I could watch with my niece after a day of playing with her kittens. I know my niece enjoyed this book and she also really liked the illustrations. I recommend this as a must read for any preschoolers in your life. Delightful and lovely.

We found this book at the local library and our daughter fell in love with it so we had to get a copy for ourselves. Hands down her favorite book - we read this to her every night and she's even able to recite the whole book. A fun, if a bit silly, book with very expressive illustrations.

I chanced upon the book in the library and decided to buy it solely because of its outstanding illustrations. They delight not only preschoolers but adults alike.
