My Review 

As I have two young children I also enjoy reading childrens books. So I was really happy to read this story and to share it with my children. 

I first read the book by myself and then I read it to my children the next day. Even though the story is maybe more suited to older children. My little ones still enjoyed listening to what Little Kitty got up to. 

My oldest child is three and he thought Little Kitty was great. He especially liked it when she got stuck up a tree and had to be rescued by a fireman!

Little Kitty is such a cheeky character who is also very brave and extremely lovable. I thought that Little Kitty's adventures were brilliant. She got into lots of scrapes in her efforts to get some salmon.

Each chapter is written by a different author and I did wonder if the story wouldn't work as well because of this. However the story flowed beautifully and very smoothly into each chapter.


Little Kitty the Cat Burglar is a sweet, engaging and charming story that is easy to read and very enjoyable!

Five stars from me! 

Thank you to all of the authors and to Brook Cottage Books for my copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.
