Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since it was first published over fifty years ago, April's Kittens remains a classic cat story and is now made available again in this handsome new edition.

Many children understand April's dilemma when her cat, Sheba, has three kittens. April is thrilled until her father insists that theirs is strickly a one-cat household. April must give up three cats, but which ones? The aptly named Charcoal? Tiger-striped Butch? Sweet-faced Brenda?--or even Sheba?

How April eventually comes up with the perfect solutions makes for a heartwarming story that has appealed to many young cat lovers and will continue to delight generations of children everywhere. Clare's Newberry's enchanting illustrations reflect her fondness for cats; School Library Journal deemed these "beautiful drawings, so real one wants to pet them."

Synopsis:

First published over 50 years ago, this classic Caldecott Honor Book is now available in a handsome new edition. When April's cat has three kittens, her father insists that they only keep one cat. How to chose? April's father finds a happy solution in this story. Full-color illustrations.

About the Author

Clare Turlay Newberry was born in Enterprise, Oregon.Before she was two years old she had begun to draw, and by the time she was six she had decided to become an illustra-tor. Drawing paper was non-existent around the Turlay home so the young artist used almost any paper she could find, including the little strips between the layers of Shred-ded Wheat biscuit.

Ms. Newberry lived in New York in a two-cat apartment.The two cats were models for Brenda and Charcoal of April's Kittens.Among the numerous books Ms. Newberry wrote and illustrated about cats and other creatures were Barkis(a 1939 Caldecott Honor Book), The Kittens' ABC, Marshmallow, Mittens, and Herbert The Lion.
