Knitty Kitty 

by David Elliot

"Clickety-click.
Tickety-tick.
Knitty Kitty sits and knits."

What could Knitty Kitty be knitting? Something to keep three mischievous kittens toasty and comfy, of course. But after the snow falls and the moon comes up and it's bedtime for kittens everywhere, what will keep them all warm and snug? Knitty Kitty has the answers! With a fun, rhythmic text and delightfully detailed illustrations, the storybook team of David Elliott and Christopher Denise knit together a read-aloud that little ones will cozy right up to.

 

"Will satisfy storytime and bedtime audiences alike."-Kirkus

 

"Gather up the cats, stoke the fire, and settle the little ones on your lap with this one for a lovely way to end a winter's day."-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books starred review

 

"Pictures are warm and interesting...perfect for toddlers and preschoolers."-1340magbooks.com

 

"A winter book, great for holiday giving, all snuggly and warm and as comforting as homemade soup. And pie...the sweetest bedtime story since Goodnight, Moon."-Seacoast Online

 

"Redwall picture-book illustrator Denise could not have packed more charm into his acrylic-and-ink kittens. Reminiscent of Galdone’s Three Little Kittens, though without its folk simplicity, this is a winner for all collections of kitty lit. (Picture book. 3-7)"-Kirkus Reviews
