Stories abound in which an unsuspecting animal is duped by the full moon. Kevin Henkes’s Caldecott Medal-winning kitten is no exception. Whether in the sky or reflected in the pond, the moon looks so full and close and so like a “little bowl of milk”! How many ways can a little kitten try to have a lick? Joan Allen has a gentle, light voice that is full of compassion for a cute, naïve kitten. Each “Poor Kitten” is heartfelt and heartrending for listeners young or old. Allen’s leisurely pace enables listeners to appreciate the connection between the parts of the escapade and their corresponding illustrations. Soothing music provides the background.
