Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book for girls age 6 - 8 Jake's Review: I really didn't want to read this one, but Mom made me. It is too young for me and even if I was that young, its still too girly for me. I did like that the cat's name was Otis and we used to have a cat named Otis. I liked that the kids were big on helping pets. It was too goody goody though, kids don't act all polite and smart like that all the time. Little kids like that little girl Jesse plays with might like it, since it does teach you the proper way to take care of cats. Jake's Rating:6/10 Mom's Review: Adorable little book for a little girl from 6-8. I agree with Jake it is a little too goody two shoes for both me and him, but it would definitely appeal to the younger girl reader (I know its sexist, but I would have liked it at that age) Good tale on the importance of responsible pet ownership, compassion towards animals and a great book to bring up conversations when kids are interested in becoming pet owners. Also about the importance of finding the "right" home for an animal. And hey, its about cute kitty cats, so whats not to like. Enjoyed the supposed thoughts of the kitten, sort of made me smile. I also got a kick out of the fact that they found Otis in a fast food bag and when we first brought home our cat Otis, the first thing he did was try to steal fries out of my fast food bag. Mom's Rating: 7/10 We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review

Editorial Reviews

"I'm so excited about Kitty Corner. Some people might assume I'm not a cat person because I write about puppies in my series The Puppy Place, but that's far from the truth. I love cats! In fact, my first pet ever was a gorgeous tortoiseshell named Jenny.

Like dogs, every cat has a personality of his or her own. They're all individuals, and they're all loveable in their own special ways."
