What's That, Mittens?

What’s That, Mittens?
April 2008
I Can Read (HPC)

Available in paperback!
Read What’s That, Mittens? to see what Mittens finds.

A big yard can be a lonely place for a little kitten. So when Mittens hears a scratching noise behind the fence, he has to see what is on the other side.

“The author skillfully integrates short exclamations and animal sounds into the text, moving the story along and adding sensory details within the early-reader format. Hartung's soft-focus watercolor illustrations imbue the appealing kitten and the big (but friendly) dog with a perky sweetness that will charm the youngest readers.” Kirkus, spring 2008

Frankie Stein comes into the world on
a bright, sunny day.

They can’t.

in his own way!
