Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Galdone lends new life and sense to the verse in this exuberant retelling of the Mother Goose rhyme with four delightful feline characters. The large type is readable and inviting, with only one or two lines of text per page. Double-page spreads are filled with vibrant watercolor washes over ink sketches. While the expressions of the cats will be the focus of children's attention, there are countless details for them to discover for themselves, such as the animal-influenced decor of the cats' home, the spice cabinet filled with different varieties of catnip, and cat ancestor portraits. Children will relate to the kittens' deserved punishment for carelessness, their theatrical displays of sorrow, and their earnest efforts to get into both their mother's good graces and that delicious looking pie. This refreshingly hearty version of the nonsense verse will be as much a favorite of adult storytellers as it will be of toddler listeners. Yvonne A. Frey, Peoria Public Library, Ill.

My 2 1/2 year old loves this book! We have taken it out of the library so many times, I have finally decided it is time to own it! I think she identifies with the sweet kittens who get into trouble but then make amends and get to eat the pie after all. Both toddlers and preschoolers will love this beautifully illustrated book.

My sons have requested this be read to them about 10 times just today! As all of Galdone's fairy tales or nursery rhymes, this is very true to the traditional telling. The special part here is the living, clever and detailed pictures. They show such neat details as a kitchen with catnip in every form---chopped, minced, blended, etc---in a spice cabinet! The cats' expressions are priceless---you wouldn't guess cats could be so expressive.

At preschool I used The "Three Little Kittens" as one of our Spring Themes. I bought the preschoolers their very own book and away we flew. Who would of known how many cool activities we would of come up with using this little story. To list a few; I bought each preschool a pair of mittens. You may say, OK. Then what? Well... The kiddos painted pictures with them on, (no paint brushes were used just hands in mittens) kiddos washed the mittens and hung them on a clothes line to dry, as we sang the song. Many cool, fun and educational experiences came out of these 30 minutes. Of course at the end of the day the mittens went into the washer, Shhhh. At the end of the week I bought each child their very on mini pie. Yep, you are correct, they ate their pies with their mittens on. Another activity they did was, make a book that everyone got to draw about their favorite part of the week. I made copies and everyone took home a complete book of their friends drawings. Including the mittens and the book I bought them.
Not such a naughty kitty after all, meeeeow🐯

When I was a little girl, many, many years ago, this was my favorite book. It was often my bedtime story. I don't know what happened to the book. It went the way of so many childhood things. When "Three Little Kittens" showed up as a Kindle daily deal, I didn't hesitate. Love the book and the illustrations. Such fond memories.

the CD music intro is too long for young children too wait. The illustrations were unattractive. My students love this story but this book did not get big reviews from my kids. When give my kids two books to choose from this book never is their choice.

I adored this novel as a child and was happy to find a copy for my 4 year old. He loves the story. I have to say that I wish it was a hardcover book though. The cover is a tad thin to be manhandled by my 4 year old when he wants to "read" it alone so I have to keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't tear it up.

This is a wonderful version of the classic story of the "Three Little Kittens". The artwork in this book is very colorful and detailed and exactly right for young children. My son (just turned 3) loves this book and must request it (we just got it) 6 times a day. The only other thing that he shows this much enthusiasm for is Thomas the Tank Engine.

His older sister (5) and I like it too, principally because of the funny details in the background and because of the amusing expressions on mama cat's face.

Some of Paul Galdone's best work.

My granddaughter loves this book and at three years old has it memorized. The kittens all
have such cute expressions on their face as the story moves along. Fear, Happiness and then delight
at the end when they smell a rat close by.
