About the Author
The daughter of the village veterinarian is determined to find homes for a litter of kittens born to the school cat. An especially sensitive and compassionate girl, she cannot tolerate the thought of the kittens being put to death by the school caretaker. Katinka Wolf reads the script in a British accent, doing well with the country accent. She strains a little too much to make her voice low for the male voices but does better with the females. This is a sweet tale with a happy ending. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In "Kittens in the Kitchen", Mandy and her friend James come to the aid of a stray cat. The stray has found refuge outside the cottage of the curt and distinctly unfriendly school custodian, Mr. Williams. Mr Williams is certainly not a cat lover, and when he arrives home to find not only the stray, but a litter of kittens atop his best shirt in the laundry basket, things don't look very hopeful. Mandy and James step in to care for the new mother and her kittens, and are faced with the daunting tasks of finding good homes for all before Mr. Williams decides to "get rid of them".
"Kittens in the Kitchen", like all in the Animal Ark series, features determined, intelligent kids that care about animals. This is a chapter book that your independent reader will enjoy for the positive role models and suspenseful storyline, as well as the lovable animals. The publisher has classified this a book for ages 9 to 12. Despite the guidelines, "Kittens in the Kitchen" is a story the entire family will enjoy.
This story is really interesting and it is easy to understand. I appreciate Mandy¡¦s sympathy, as we can see her willingness to look after and find new homes for the kittens. Although she finds lots of difficulties during the process, she never decides to give up. May be she thinks that she was very like the cat. Because they were both adopted. It¡¦s really touchable.
I would highly recommend this book to all young readers because it¡¦s very amusing. The readers may get a sense of caring animals from reading this book. I am sure that you will enjoy it.
this book! This book was the first book I read out of the series when I was 11 years old. After
starting this book I was hooked and I still read them every chance I get even today and I am 13!!
~This was a marvelous book about two kids, Mandy Hope and her best friend James Hunter...who
care for an abandoned mother cat. The cat, named Walton (after their school), ends up having her
kittens in Mr. William's (the school janitor) house. Mr. Williams gives Mandy and James one
week to get the kittens out of his house because he hates cats. Along the way, Mandy and James
make friends in this touching tale of the perseverance of life, promises, and trust!
