She's not a "regular" girl because she's a kitty with the tail and ears to match!
D. Campbell
The illustrations are cute, the story is fun, the tone is positive and the text conveys well the voice of a little girl.
J. Jacobs
It's a short read that both parent and child found enjoyable - I'd highly recommend it for a little girl.

Antoinette Portis is a two-part winner: she writes children's stories that are unique, fascinating to youngsters, include just enough life lessons to set a bit of a goal for the reader and she happens to be a very fine illustrator! PRINCESS SUPER KITTY is a beautifully constructed and illustrated tale for ages 4 - 8 and it likely will become a book all parents or child care givers will want to include in the available home library. She starts her story with a cute little spunky gal named Maggie who is always accompanied by her cat. One day Maggie decides to don a costume - cat ears and a cat tale, stating she is no a regular girl, but rather she is a kitty. She goes about her daily functions in the role of a kitty ('who are cuter than people'), altering a few kitty functions such as preferring peanut butter and banana sandwiches, until taking lots of naps enters the picture! So she becomes Super Kitty, performing extraordinary acts and when that status declines she advances herself to Princess Super Kitty - and that is just tops until the subject of baths comes up and she changes yet again!

Each dreamy sequence alters when facing a daily task - a terrific way for children to address tasks in a humorous way. The book is a delight on every level - story and art...Antoinette Portis is a polished pro! Grady Harp, November 11

Antoinette Portis' newest picture book inhabits, as Ms Portis does in all her stories, the magical terrain of imagination. This time, her lovable protagonist folds into her play the every day experiences of being a daughter and big sister and empowers herself through creativity, wit, joy and exuberance. Children will find themselves on every page.

This is an adorable story about a little girl (Maggie) who puts on a "kitty" outfit and initially dons the persona of a cat only to expand her character as she adapts to various encounters and eventually becomes "Princess Super Kitty." Well illustrated, entertaining and a great book for early readers, Antoinette Portis delivers an appealing story for little girls that should stir their imaginations.

I especially liked the way Portis amplifies little Maggie's character as the book progresses and hits the reset button at the end. The animation and storyline were quite appealing and humorous to my five-year-old daughter, who loved animal/princess/superhero combination.

After reading a few negative reviews regarding this book, I felt inclined to add my own. This book is lovely, funny, imaginative and reminds me of my own little 4-year-old princess super kitty. The illustrations are entertaining and colorful. The story encourages creative play and promotes imagination as it follows the main character playing multiple layers of dress-up. My daughter and I both love this book and would highly recommend it!

Format: Hardcover
The first time I read this book with my 2.5 year old daughter, I was almost moved to write a letter to the author. She has obviously spent time time with a creative little girl. Our daughter is encouraged to pretend-play often and acting like a kitty, and mimicking our cats, is at the top of her list. Besides that, she has a father who loves superheroes, so she is very familar with Thor and Captain American among others. The first night we read this book, it was like she finally had a superhero of her own. We read this book every night, and it's our second time renewing from the library so it's going on the wish list. The great thing about exposing her to pretend play is that at 2.5 she knows the difference between real and make-believe. The main character can eat her sandwich off a bowl on the floor or leap off a couch, but that doesn't mean my daughter does these things "because the book told her it's okay." I was also surprised to see comments about this book being sterotypical! I work full-time, hubby stays home, and we BOTH do dishes. Showing a mother with rubber gloves isn't going to damage her...cause it's a BOOK. I think it also shows the mom has a lot on her plate taking care of three kids, and they all play nicely with each other, so you can skew the message in a positive light too. And, yes, Maggie is SLIGHTLY demanding in her persona as a princess. I saw absolutely nothing wrong with that. That is exactly how I would "play" princess too, and I think children will definitely relate, especially if they are the older siblings. If you have a fun-loving, adventurous toddler like I do, you really can't go wrong.

Other reviewers have been kind enough to provide a more detailed synopsis of the book so I'll just skip to the reviewing.

I can't tell you the number of times my three year old daughter has asked to read this book since it arrived in the mail. She's absolutely crazy about the little girl in this book and her adventures in princess-dom and her kitty. She's actually gotten quite well at reading (recounting from memory) the story to me, so it is simple book for pre-schoolers to "read."

Cute, interesting (at least the first 50 times for Mom), simple enough to encourage wee folk, and gets my daughter to sit still for at least 3 minutes = thumbs up all the way!

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Princess Super Kitty knows how to have fun and to make the mundane, and routine, daily activities of her life, interesting and "SUPER!". She's not a "regular" girl because she's a kitty with the tail and ears to match! Questions from Mom are politely responded with a "meow" and she is indulged with her milk served in a bowl when she is hungry. And, though, most kitties prefer to eat fish, she prefers a PB & J sandwich along with avoiding the normal feline trait of taking long quiet naps. This is because SUPER kitties don't take naps!

When I first read this book, I thought it was cute, but nothing too special. That was, until I read it to a couple of five-year-old girls who went crazy for it; I decided to analyze it a little closer. Then, it occurred to me, Princess Super Kitty not only expresses her feminine side by being a princess, she's a super hero to boot. She is of the generation of little girls where it doesn't enter into their thinking process that one trait is exclusive from the other. Those traits are now integrated absent of even a brief pause. Ok, how cool it that?

The illustrations are simple and thick black lined, yet expressive. Plenty of pink is used throughout the book to satisfy most pink-loving little girls. Pictures of dressing up in jewels in order to parade around her land to be admired and to say "Hi" to Mom is sweet.

I wouldn't recommend this book being read as a read aloud to a group of kids, but one to three girls, or boys if they show an interest. If you have a little girl who is big into dressing up and playing make believe, they will probably enjoy this book a lot.
