Review: 'Calico's Curious Kittens' by Phyllis Limbacher Tildes

Calico's Curious Kittens by Phyllis Limbacher Tildes, 2003, Charlesbridge, $1.99, softbound, 31 pages. Category/Genre: mainstream. Cover: very good. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble. 

Calico's seven rambunctious kittens are very curious. When it's time for them to take a nap, they hide in drawers and in bags, and get in the flour. Then they bring the curtains down, then sneak outside, where they get into still more mischief.

The text is simple and alluring, and the artwork is well done. Each of the kittens has a name, and it's fun to read about their many antics. 

Written for ages 5-8.
