Format: Hardcover
This is one of those children's books that over the past two years or so has sort of slipped under the radar and has not gotten the attention that it probably deserves. I am not sure what the problem is as it seems unlikely that a book written my Joyce Carol Oates would be under marketed by the publisher. That is a shame as it would seem that just not all that many people have heard of or are familiar with this work, and the book, including the text and illustrations are quite good...certainly better than many I have seen recently.

Cherie is one of five kittens who lives with Mommy Cat and Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Cherie's best friend, a little girl named Evan. Cherie is the cutest kitten of the litter and by far the most adventuresome and alas, I hate to report this, but she is also the one naughty kitten of the little family. She climbs the curtains and tears them down, tears up Evan's books, spills water from the dishes, attacks Mr. Smith's shoes, spills classes all over the place and wakes everyone from their naps...among many other mischievous little pranks. All in all, our little bundle of energy can be just a bit of a handful. She excuses her behavior because she "is just a baby."

One day, after a particularly frenzy of destruction, Mrs. Smith places Cherie in a corner by herself for punishment. While sort of sulking in the corner, the kitten finds a crack in the wall that leads to a secret room; the Little Friends Kindercare. This room is filled with other baby animals, which sort of scares Cherie and thrills her at the same time. But my goodness, our wayward kitten finds that while many of the other baby animals are not really mean to her, the are somewhat obnoxious and do things that simply annoy the little cat. They certainly are not being nice!

I liked "Naughty Cherie!" because the text and illustrations were neither too sentimental nor didactic, either. The protagonist learnt to treat others better through events in the story and her thoughts about them, rather than having the narrator or one of the other characters preach the lessons she needed to learn to her.
