Synopsis

Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes

It is Kitten's first full moon, and when she sees it she thinks it is a bowl of milk in the sky. And she wants it. Does she get it? Well, no...and yes. What a night! This brave young kitten sets out into the world on a quest that leaves her bruised, bewildered and hungry, but that ultimately leads her back home, where something special is waiting just for her, in a story that is by turns hilarious and heartwarming. With stunning black-and-white artwork, a simple text and an adorable kitten character, this picture book has all the makings of a modern classic.

About the Author

Kevin Henkes lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Kitten's First Full Moon is his thirty-fourth book for children; all have been published by Greenwillow Books in the United States. His drawing style is rowdy, exuberant, equal parts late Arnold Lobel and early Maurice Sendak. His heroes are admirably tenacious, plucky and equal to whatever task, lesson or sorrow Mr Henkes supplies for them. His writing has a concise wit that is rare in children's books... There is also an emotional context to Mr Henkes's picture-book work that is equally rare... His work rings true. The New York Times Book Review
