Description

It's a vibrant autumn day in Kitten's second adventure, as the ever-curious Kitten explores the woods near her farm and meets the creatures who live there. She finds a chipmunk chewing on a seed, a caterpillar munching on a leaf, a frog catching flies and many more creatures snacking on this and that to ready themselves for winter.

While the simple rhyming couplets make this a perfect read-aloud, young readers will enjoy picking out seasonal details in the mixed-media art and searching for and finding Kitten on every page.
