Product Details

Praise

“The appealing artwork was created using a variety of media, resulting in a nicely varied, upbeat look. . . . Lively and amusing, this story about making stories will likely find eager listeners—and may just inspire some writing projects, too.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Woodruff’s mixed-media illustrations, done in watercolor, colored pencil, pen, and ink, work well both for the quiet playroom and the wild jungle setting. Readers will love following the collaboration between the girl and her kitten in this thought- and art-provoking book.”Booklist

“The imaginative child’s art benefits from Woodruff’s own deft use of cheery colors in her mixed-media illustrations, as the girl adds cartoony-looking vipers, hyenas, and ‘ROCKETS! ROBOTS! LIGHTNING! SHARKS!’ to the scene, while the now-wide-eyed cat becomes increasingly (and humorously) more nervous-looking.” The Horn Book 
 
“The mixed media illustrations are vibrantly rich and delightfully entertaining. The spunk and charisma of the cheeky little kitten makes him an amusing and endearing character. A charming tale of ‘be careful what you wish for’ for young children.” School Library Journal
