This beautiful black and white picture book tells the story of a kitten who thinks the moon is a bowl of milk. That sets her on a quest to reach this desirable object—a quest that, of course, does not succeed. But it does lead to lots of comic situations that leave the reader rooting for the innocent little animal. Despite her many travails, the story ends on a happy note as the kitten returns home to find a real bowl of milk sitting on the steps. The book has everything one would want in a story for young children—terrific images, wonderful ideas and powerful emotions.
