Book one of this charming early chapter series was purrrr-ely sweet and entertaining. Kitty has always loved cats. The only problem is she is incredibly allergic to them. When her friend gets a new kitten and invites Kitty for a sleepover, she’s a tad worried that her endless sneezing will be a problem. Her grandma quickly encourages her to go and gifts her a special family heirloom that she believes will help Kitty overcome her allergy. It definitely helps, but it also transforms Kitty into her very favorite animal!!!!
This is a sweet story full of magic. I love Kitty’s relationship with her grandma and how she learns about their family secret. It’s a great concept for a series that could have endless storylines as we watch her use these newfound powers to help out the local felines with various problems. This book addressed bullying. The chapters are short, it includes some incredibly cute illustrations and even gives the reader some interesting facts at the end. Definitely recommend for ages 7-10.
Misty the Scared Kitten is the first book in the series, Kitty’s Magic, by Ella Moonheart. It’s a middle grade chapter book about a young girl who finds out about her family’s secret power to transform into a cat. The book takes the reader through how the young girl uses her powers to help other cats. I enjoyed reading this book to my seven-year-old daughter. It was easy to read, entertaining and each chapter kept us wanting more. We also enjoyed the pictures scattered throughout the book. Both my daughter and I are excited to continue reading the series.

Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Misty The Scared Kitty, the first book in the new Kitty’s Magic chapter book series By Ella Moonheart (published by Bloomsbury) is sure to win hearts.
Kitty, a young American girl with Japanese heritage, adores cats. There’s only one problem— she’s allergic. When her best friend becomes the proud new owner of a sweet silver tabby named Misty, Kitty is equally thrilled and distressed.
Kitty’s Japanese grandmother comes to the rescue, presenting Kitty with a necklace belonging to her great grandmother. A necklace, which she claims, will stop Kitty suffering from allergy symptoms.
But not only does the necklace allow Kitty to play comfortably with her friend’s new cat, it allows her to transform into a cat herself whenever she chooses! The only catch, Kitty cannot reveal the secret of the necklace to anyone or the magic will no longer work.
The timing of this new discovery is perfect. Misty is in hideout from two mean Persian cats who prowl her backyard. Together, Misty and feline-form Kitty sneak out at night to seek help from the local cats’ Cat Council and devise a plan to scare off the Persian bullies once and for all.
This series is perfect for the younger chapter book set. The magical element is exciting yet easy to understand, the story is simple, and the illustrations are super cute. With its relatively slow pace and lack of high-stakes action, this is an ideal bedtime read. Likely to appeal to fans of series such as The Fun Day Fairies by Daisy Meadows.
Cozy up in your pajamas and enjoy!
On another note I love that Kitty comes from a family of Japanese immigrants and there is a touch of culture weaved into the story. I won’t ruin too much of the story but will say that, Kitty is not the first guardian in her family!
This book is recommended for ages 7-10; grades 2-4. It’s over 100 pages long; the text is easy to read with wide spacing, large margins, and a few illustrations sprinkled throughout the book. It was published on Feb. 20th! If this book sounds like something for your reader, go get it right “meow”!
I absolutely loved it! It was cute, fast and purrrfect!! This was honestly not what I was expecting. The story took a positive yet an unexpected turn. It’s not much of a spoiler since it is in the synopsis but I think it’s wonderful that Kitty can turn into a kitten!
