  • Kitten is a young pampered house cat who yearns for adventure. One day he meets a dove who tells him of the evil and power of the Flöbbertigôbbet.  He decides to go through a portal in the wall she tells him about to fight this evil being.  In the other world, he finds others who tempt him towards evil ways and allies in the forms of a Wolf, a Horse and a Bear who agree to help him on his journey. 

I really enjoyed this fun tale when the tiny kitten takes on the evil giant.  Humans and Animals live apart in this strange other world.  Animals talk and coordinate and work together.  You need to be able to suspend disbelief - it is a bit of a fable.

I know some people hate anthromorphizing animals and having them talk.  This book is not for them.  Not to mention, you have to be able to accept that Kitten understands and communicates complex concepts such as the predator/prey relationship from watching his owners tv.  As I said - not for everyone.  BUT that said, I have no problem with that suspension of disbelief and just allow the story to unfold.  Good vs. evil, evolving and growing to become better.  Mind games. These are elements I enjoyed.  Fantasy can be fun - and this is a fun tale!
