Christmas Kitten: Home at Last, by Robin Pulver, ill. by Layne Johnson (Albert Whitman, 2010.)
What happens when Santa finds a kitten during his Christmas Eve visits? He asks Mrs. Claus if he can keep it! Unfortunately Santa is allergic. There is one little girl who would be a good fit for Cookie (the kitten), but her parents haven't given the okay...yet.
Kids will love this book about what they dream of: getting an adorable kitten for Christmas, or, from the kitten's point of view, getting to see Santa's Workshop (where the elves are having their Christmas party.) They'll also love the warmly realistic illustrations. Just look at that kitten on the cover...making Puss in Boots eyes at the reader!
This is a follow up to Christmas for a Kitten, which tells the story of how Santa found the kitten. Robin Pulver is also the author of Punctuation Takes a Vacation and other books about language and grammar. Happy Endings: a Story about Suffixes will be featured next month.
This month, somebody will win a signed copy of Christmas Kitten!
