Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this for my five year old niece and was hoping it would become a new favorite. And while she enjoyed it, it's not one that she asks to be read to her again and again.

The pictures are cute and uncomplicated, much like the story. We especially liked how the story kept building on the original idea during pretend play. But I thought the words that went along with the illustrations was just ok. No catchy phrases, rhymes, or silliness. I was actually expecting a bit more from this book because of the cover quote by Maurice Sendak, and not having read a book by this author before I had very little to go on other than the cover image.

Unfortunately I have a feeling that this book will end up being read very little because whenever I ask her to bring me the books she wants to read this is not one that she picks up as a preference which is why I gave it 3 stars. An average book, which some may like more than others, but a story and character that more than likely will not become a favorite, nor will it be one that I recommend or gift to others.

p.s. She prefers the Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, The Complete Adventures of Curious George: 70th Anniversary Edition, Ruby's Cupcakes (Max and Ruby), and the Put Me in the Zoo (I can read it all by myself' Beginner Books)

I'm a mother of a three year old girl, and I like this book. I've read it multiple times from the library and feel like overall, the message of dressing up and imagination and pretend play is stronger than anything else. I feel like I'm pretty strict on a lot of things, but a lot of things I let go. I didn't realize there would be objection to this book, until I decided to come post a review. If you're the kind of parent who wants to encourage creative play and imagination - get this book! If you don't care if your kid gets dirty, runs around in their underwear, or wants to be called a doggy all day and barks responses to you instead of answering - get this book! The child in the book appears to have an active imagination and good spirit. She answer her mother in meows, brings her little siblings bottles, and runs around in her undies pretending to be a hero. She can even lift huge objects with her strong arms -- toy fire truck.
We aren't much into princesses, but she even goes into princess territory, but she isn't just Super and a Kitty, she's also a Princess. She plays with her brother as a Queen and has him obey by giving her a glue stick. Her and the brother and younger sibling, march around the house in a royal parade. I feel like most of the things in the book are presented lightly, with laughter, with the mother playing along and waving at the children as they march royally by. The children are never disrespectful. Even the "kitties nap all day, but not me" turns into a cute statement. She isn't just a Kitty, she is a Super Kitty. You can always tell your kid Super Kitty naps, too - just not all day! My 3 year old is smitten with this book, and dressing up. She had me draw the girl on a piece of paper to tape in her room.
