"Not just a picture book with illustrations to linger over; it serves as a showcase for folk artists ... this book is more of a mini-coffee table jewel than a quick read to be tossed aside by grubby (non-feline) paws. The text in verse ... is simply a caption to this array of beautifully rendered kitty characters." -- Time Out (New Delhi) July 2009
