In a cottage nestled in the wintry countryside, "Clickety-click. / Tickety-tick. / Knitty Kitty sits and knits." She makes a hat for one kitten to keep it cozy. She makes mittens for a second kitten to keep it toasty. She makes a scarf for the third to keep it comfy. When the kittens play in the snow and make a snowman, they think he wants to be cozy too, and soon it's the snowman who sports the hat, mittens and scarf. Soon it's bedtime for the kittens, and they all climb into their big basket. They can't sleep, though; they aren't cozy, comfy or toasty. Knitty Kitty has just what they need: herself! "Night-night, little kittens." / "Night-night, Knitty Kitty." Elliott's simple, onomatopoeic text with a twist at the end will satisfy storytime and bedtime audiences alike. Redwall picture-book illustrator Denise could not have packed more charm into his acrylic-and-ink kittens. Reminiscent of Galdone's Three Little Kittens, though without its folk simplicity, this is a winner for all collections of kitty lit. (Picture book. 3-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
