Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-2. "Do kitties like to shop in stores? No, they prefer catalogs!" "How do kitties cut their grass? With a lawn meower!" Those are some of the better entries in this Dial Easy-to-Read book by the writers and illustrator who have done lots of riddle books. This one includes its full share of groaners, but the combination of 34 puns with ink-and-watercolor slapstick cartoons will please (okay, a-mews) cat lovers and show new readers that the sounds of words are part of the fun. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-This collection of humorous riddles features plenty of appealing wordplay. "Why do kitties sing so well? They're very mewsical." As in Fishy Riddles (1983), Dinosaur Riddles (1999), and Batty Riddles (1993, all Dial), the text and complementary pictures will amuse youngsters. Some of the jokes require a sophisticated frame of reference for the level of text, such as: "What mountains do kitties love? The Catskills." Yet, overall content is "purrfect" for the learning-to-read set. Children will be laughing out loud from riddles such as "Can your pet kitty ever learn to like your pet bird? Yes, especially with barbecue sauce!" This book will pounce off the shelves.-Olga R. Barnes, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC (c) Copyright 2010.
