Amy Tan's light, airy voice includes the listener as if sharing a bedtime story. The naughty white kitten, Sagwa, comes from a long line of royal Chinese cats. Her mischief changes the spirit of the cruel magistrate and future for her ancestors. Tan tells the story simply and with little embellishment. She uses few character voices but seems to warm to her own telling as the story progresses. The story is repeated exactly on side two. Listeners who love cats, Asian folktales, and authors who read their own stories will find this a good choice. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 95]
