The clever structure, a story told entirely through two-word phrases composed of adjectives and then the nouns "kitty" and "city," makes for a hypnotic, satisfying read-aloud experience, though the order changes after the first two pages, the only time the kitty precedes the city. A cozy story for cat lovers and anyone looking for a happy ending.--Kirkus Reviews
"This imaginative and creative book...will appeal to all children, as adventure, beginning reader, or even as an inviting cityscape to pore over."--School Library Journal
"The illustrated cartoonlike spreads, done in acrylic gouache, enable children to follow the journey of the orange-and-white cat as she navigates the busy metropolis and finds kindness and love."--Booklist
"Miller (Horse Meets Dog) chronicles his protagonist's travels with compositions that range from bird's-eye views to dramatic low angles, while the abbreviated text may remind readers of their own pets' epithets: 'Noisy city./ Hiding kitty'; 'Wildlife city./ Playful kitty.'"--Publishers Weekly
