Kittens In The Kitchen

‘Kittens In The Kitchen’ is written by Lucy Daniels and illustrated by Shelagh McNicholas. The book is set in a small town of Welford. This is a fictional, adventurous story which is the first novel of a series of different animal books.
This book a about a girl called Mandy, who lives with her veterinarian foster parents in a small cottage with the vets surgery attached. Mandy has a school friend called James, who she is often hanging out with. Together they try to find good homes for four kittens of the caretaker. In just one week. Will Mandy and James be able to help these kittens under the pressure of the temperamental caretaker or will he take things into his own hands?
The awesome thing about this book was that it was mostly about kittens but it had lots of humour in it which made it more interesting. One of the not so good things about this book was that it had some characters that were mentioned but not said much about.
I think that the author was trying to give a message that just because a person may not like animals doesn’t mean that they are mean or nasty.
I would definitely recommend this book because it is very funny and relates to cruel things that happen in real life. I also think it is a great book for both girls and boys.


  1. Great book review Maria, I look forward to hearing about the other books in the series.

  2. Great review Maria. You are making some good use of complex sentences. You made some thoughtful comments about what the author was trying to achieve.

  3. Hi Maria, Glad to hear you enjoyed the book and got so much from the story. It is an important message. Maybe the stories are why I became a vet. Keep reading!
