Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-In this addition to the series, the twin kittens are having a hopping good time bouncing on beds, sofas, and chairs. The ruckus awakens Daddy Cat Big Jim and Mama Cat Lady Jane and then interrupts their breakfast. The parents try in vain to put a stop to the noise and the feline gymnastics. The twist comes when Daddy storms up the stairs one last time and is surprised to find that Lady Jane has taken an "if you can't beat `em, join `em" attitude. Soon, everyone is bouncing on the bed-until Big Jim breaks it. Planer's cartoons are colorful, but average in quality, and the story is no more than a one-joke book. Eileen Christelow's Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed (Ticknor & Fields, 1989) and Tedd Arnold's No Jumping on the Bed (Dial, 1987) are more competently written and illustrated.-Roxanne Burg, Thousand Oaks Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
