Papillon: The Very Fluffy Kitty by A.N. Kang- ESSENTIAL

Kang, A.N. Papillon: The Very Fluffy Kitty, PICTURE BOOK. Disney Hyperion, 2016. $16.99. Papillon is a white, super, super fluffy kitty. He is so fluffy, he floats. His owner, Miss tilly, loves him so much and she is always worrying he will float away forever. She tried to weigh him down with lots and lots of rich food, but it didn’t work. The only thing that did was dressing him in clothes. Papillon however, hated being dressed up. Papillon follows a new bird friend out the window one day and eventually gets lost. He is scared and tries to make himself some clothes out of leaves, but the wind blows them (and him) away. Luckily, his new bird friend knows just what to do and lands on his head. Together they make their way home. In the end a new solution is created. I went gah-gah over the pictures in this book. They are simple and with lovely details. They are somewhat reminiscent of Lueyen Pham’s artwork. The story is equally as fabulous in the exact some way. PRE-K, K-3- ESSENTIAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
