{Synopsis} – Ava wants a pet, but Mom and Dad say she's too little. So when she finds a kitty, Ava decides to name him Itty Bitty and keep him a secret. There's just one tiny problem: Itty Bitty starts growing and growing and growing . . . until he's neither itty nor bitty! Kids will laugh and cheer along as Ava and Itty Bitty try to keep Mom and Dad from discovering their not-so-little secret!

From New York Times bestselling author Joan Holub and award-winning illustrator James Burks comes this unlikely friendship story with enormous heart! Featuring lively, bouncy text and bold, colorful artwork, this picture book is purr-fect for pet lovers and their parents alike.

{My thoughts} – Itty Bitty Kitty is a sweet story about a little girl named Ava that really wants a pet. One day she is outside moping and she ends up on a bench next to a box with a itty bitty kitty inside. She takes the itty bitty kitty home and she hides it. She takes well care of it and hopes when her parents finally find out that they will let her keep it. However, when they find out they want the kitty gone the next day. The night before the kitty is suppose to leave the kitty does something that helps to change the minds of Ava’s parents and they allow her to keep the kitty. I wonder what that could be?

The illustrations in this book go so nicely with the story inside the pages. I really enjoyed the vibrant colors, the words matching the pictures and the overall fun way that the book is put together. The author and the illustrator did a wonderful job on this book and I look forward to seeing more like it in the future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
