Le Guin's fanciful creations, four kittens with wings, have been happily living in a barn, cared for by understanding humans. The kittens Harriet and James, however, miss their mother and decide to fly back to the city for a visit. Although they cannot find her at first, the two soon discover a black kitten with yellow eyes who has wings like their own. Le Guin's deep voice and absorbed reading style are just right for the material, and she's blissfully unhurried as she narrates the kittens' adventures. When she hisses the black kitten's fear ("hate--hate--hate!"), she captures a cat's nature while captivating listeners. Her gentle, careful voice once again casts a spell that will have listeners believing cats can fly. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
