Editorial Reviews

These stories feature Kitty, Monkey, Mouse, Giraffe, Rabbit, and Dog as they experience everyday events. InGoodbye, Fish, Kitty's friends attempt to get her dead goldfish to respond. When tickling its tummy and making waves in the bowl don't work, Giraffe breaks the bad news. A proper burial is held. After Kitty faithfully waters Fish's grave, since he "didn't like dirt, he liked water," a golden flower appears. Van Lindenhuizen's winning critters on spare backgrounds pose with gentle friendliness." - School Library Journal "
