This I-want-a-pet story by Robinson (Grandmas from Mars) offers sustained warmth and slow, thoughtful pacing...Robinson and Lee make the girl's longing easy to understand and her joy a pleasure to share.
--Publishers Weekly

Robinson's tale of a kitty-wish fulfilled will brighten the hearts of young cat lovers. The soft tones of Lee's watercolor-and-pencil illustrations of a white-presenting family (and a passel of pusses of every color) are an excellent match for Robinson's gentle story of pet love. Too many cats may be a possibility--but never too many books celebrating feline companionship.
--Kirkus Reviews

The variety of cats depicted in the watercolor illustrations is delightful and the scenes are sunny and bright, giving the story an overall feeling of hope and happiness. In depicting a scenario that many wistful young pet owners may relate to, this text has wide appeal for those in the preschool through early education years. A purr-fectly pleasing picture book for pet lovers at heart.
