A Kitten’s Year by Nancy Raines Day and Anne Mortimer

A Kitten’s Year is like a calendar – each month comes with a gorgeous painting documenting Kitten’s adventures, from a bitty kitty in January to a full-sized kitty in December. Sprocket instantly connected with the little unnamed protagonist, who looks quite as fluffy as a kitten can be.

The Miaos agree: This book belongs in every kitten’s kitten-book collection. The simple text (just a couple words per page), accessible subject matter (kittens eating, kittens playing, kittens napping), and vividly detailed illustrations are sure to be an excellent accompaniment to your kitten’s kitten nap.

    BEST EVER.
    Best review, best reviewer, best calendar.
    Sprocket puts so much energy into his work! And his connection with the characters is enchanting. He’s a snorgleicious marvel!

    Wish I could make this font bigger: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. You just keep taking those pics that top the cuteness of the previous ones! *melt*

    Oh, all the photos are great, but that last one where he’s snorgling the book kitten made my head asplode!

  4. I’d forgotten that this is Sprocket’s first Halloween, and this year will be his first Christmas as well. These babies grow up too fast! *sniff*

    “Like” doesn’t do this justice at all but I’m fading fast over here. Head-butt, over out.
