I wish the ending was a bit different but still a cute story. There's just too much no in this book and not enough yes.
Popularity/appeal rating: 3.5Quality rating: 3.5In a one-sentence nutshell:Kitten keeps doing increasingly naughty things until he finally ends up in a rocket ship with puppy en route to Jupiter. Cute story and illustrations that will appeal to anyone who has a mischievous cat.
This book made me giggle a lot, particularly Nichols' illustrations. My favorite is the page where the kitten gets its head stuck in a glass and then gets all blissed out on catnip, although the kitten butt sticking out from a basket full of toys a few pages earlier is also hilarious.
Terrific, and I would expect nothing less from Shelley Moore Thomas.
This kitten wants everything it can't have (a puppy, a helmet, a rocket ship). Great for story time.
It's me running around my house trying to get my kitten to heel. She doesn't listen. Neither does this one. 5/5 for all the life truths.
This is the perfect book for my cat-obsessed preschooler. She giggled every time we said "no, no" to kitten, though the rocket at the end lost her a bit.
I appreciate the imaginative story, but the text didn't flow very well. Though the ending was cute, it was just kind of thrown together.
I'm just not really a fan of kid's books that show (seemingly) bad behavior. It's like taking a class in being naughty.
Not being a cat person does not prevent me from being well aware of their distinctive personalities. Over the years, once permission was granted by the creatures in question, several friends have had feline companions. Even a true-blue dog person like me is unable to resist the lure of a kitten.What is important to remember is those tiny beings and their human counterparts have a lot to learn about what they can and cannot do or have. No, No, Kitten! (Boyds Mills Press, an imprint of Highlights, [...]
A kitten wishes for many things. Some of which most kittens want (toys, food, etc.), but when kitten starts wishing for other things, Kitten is told it is impossible. This felt too negative for me; yes, in the end it turns out Kitten was "right" to wish for these "impossible" things, and true, it was a child telling Kitten it couldn't have these things; but honestly, with the amount of destruction Kitten was causing, don't really blame them for telling Kitten "No" so much, however, still didn't [...]
Beautiful picture book! I read this to my kitten Nora Jean. Although it take a few times before she would sit still and listen. She did like it. I think the reason she was having such a difficult time paying attention was because she thinks she can do anything and the word no has no meaning in her vocabualry ( that is if kittens/cats did have a vocabulary). I loved this book and look forward to the next No, No Puppy!
Kitten has aspirations. Kitten wants a puppy, a helmet, and a trip to outer space.I tried to read this to my two young nieces yesterday. Both are cat lovers, but weren't captivated by the story and wandered off before the end. I thought the story was cute, captured cat tendencies well and took them a step higher with humorous touches.
My 18 month old son loved this book. The illustrations are cute and the vocabulary is fun and easy. We practiced "no, no, no" when Kitten was naughty. We tried new sounds (pew, pew, pew says the laser), learned about new places, and practiced familiar baby signs.
Oh my gosh, this was beyond adorable! It's so clever and humorous. Both children and adults will love this story of the Kitten who wants to do things he's not supposed to do. The illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and so cute!!!
Repetition and predicting make this a fun story for preschoolers. The blasting off part is a surprise, but doesn't fit as well. The puppy who watches the kitten's antics gets his own share of the attention!Bold colors and simple illustrations will help younger readers focus on the action.
Hilarious. A slightly older group than my usual storytime kids -- probably the 3- to 6-year old age range -- would get the most out of its extensive absurdity and adorable illustrations. Chase your dreams, Kitten!
Fresh and funny, would make a great story time read aloud.
perfect for the superhero animal story time theme
Kitten wants go to Jupiter! Will she do it?Great imagination at work.
I can see young readers giggling at this picture book.
cute and funny. on the to buy list .
Lively, cute silliness that lends itself well for reading aloud.
Kitten has big dreams! Good for a read-aloud.
Adorable. G and I really enjoyed this one together. I think she is a lot like this kitten Can't put her into a box of what others think she should be. Love the curious little kitten.
this was cute but there was really was no flow to the story not one i would remember in the long run
