REVIEW: Itty-Bitty Kitty-Corn by Shannon Hale, illustrated by LeUyen Pham
From bestselling superstar duo Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham comes a delightful kitty and unicorn story that celebrates the magic of friendship—and being exactly who you want to be!
Kitty thinks she might be a unicorn.
She feels so perfectly unicorn-y! “Neigh!” says Kitty.
But when Unicorn clop clop clops over, sweeping his magnificent tail and neighing a mighty neigh, Kitty feels no bigger than a ball of lint.
Can this unlikely pair embrace who they are, and truly see one another?
In their first picture book together, the magical, bestselling team of Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham put their horns together for the most heart-bursting, tail-twitching, fuzzy-feeling, perfectly unicorn-y story imaginable.
Honestly, after I read this for the first time, I was almost prostrate with squee at how cute it is. I mean, Oh My Cat, Kitty is adorable. She aims high when she imagines who she wants to be and then tries to make it so. The message of friendship and acceptance it wonderful. Plus – kitties and unicorns and pink and rainbows. It’s fabulous. Now that I’ve read the book about four times in the 30 minutes since I got it, I still feel the same way. Be sure to look at the end pages plus the parakeet and the gecko who are almost as cute as Kitty and her Kitty-Corn friend. B+
Itty Bitty Kitty Corn is a fantastic title!
Jayne, have you seen this 2,000 year old picture of a cat? I just found this article, but it’s dated October. In case you haven’t I thought you’d appreciate it.
@Heidi: Yes! I’ve seen the nazca cat. I wonder how any image that large remained undiscovered until now.
Kitty-Corn has a lot of cattitude to go with her pretty horn and grand dreams. There’s actually a plushie I’ve seen at Amazon that looks a lot like her only it has fairy wings as well.
