Kindergarten-Grade 4–Long Tail Kitty talks like any youngster eager to share a story. Children will enjoy the simple language that he uses to introduce himself and his friends. The book starts with where he lives and progresses to what happens when he plays in a meadow, makes friends, and eats food. The story is organized into short vignette-style chapters. Long Tail Kitty encounters flowers with feelings, talks to a greedy grumpy grateful bee, becomes friends with Good Tall Mouse, and plays with aliens from outer space. Children will enjoy Pien's alliteration and her soft, pastel watercolors. Bonus pages include how to draw Long Tail Kitty and how to show his many moods. Give this to youngsters new to the graphic-novel format.–Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC
