A daring, dinosaur-climbing adventure leads to hilarious kitty hijinks in this adorable tale of perseverance

They're adorable! They're daring! They're kitties who love to climb things! And they won't give up until they've achieved their ultimate climbing dream: scaling the dinosaurs on nearby Dinosaur Island. The level-headed narrator warns the kitties that the dinosaurs look hungry, that their teeth are super big, that things look terribly bleak if they go through with climbing the dinosaurs. But these kitties have a plan. And then another plan. And then another...well, you get the idea. Can these fair kitties conquer their biggest challenge yet and avoid cat-astrophe?

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I'm not the audience for this, as I'm neither four years old nor a cat lover. For those demographics, this book might be more entertaining.

See, there's a trio of kitties that climb things. They want to climb everything... and that means braving the dinosaurs on Dinosaur Island. So they get in their mobile litter box and head over there to see if they can climb some dinos. Each of their plans is thwarted until, finally, there's a surprise twist. And then an even bigger twist.

Unfortunately, I didn't really care about these stupid—albeit tenacious—cats. The illustrations are cute, which saved this book from being a complete dud for me.

If you love cats and dinosaurs, you might enjoy this. If you're neutral about both, you might not be that enthused about this particular title.

Premise: 3/5
