Gr. 1-3. In this sequel to Three Stories You Can Read to Your Cat (1997), Miller explains that the reason cats sleep so much may be that they don't know how to read. She offers witty stories for children to read aloud to their pets. The first tale concerns the birthday of a cat that is alternately bored, scared, and disgusted by its presents but thoroughly entertained by the wrapping paper. In the second, the cat is desperately anxious to get outside to explore the white flakes falling from the sky, then desperately anxious to get inside and away from the cold, wet snow. The third looks at life from the point of view of a nocturnal animal in a diurnal household. Just as precise and more overtly funny than the stories are Kelley's brightly colored ink-and-wash illustrations, which capture feline postures, attitudes, and expressions to perfection. Another excellent book in a consistently entertaining series. ((Reviewed April 15, 2002)) Copyright 2002 Booklist ReviewsReview by Publishers Weekly Reviews
The follow-up to Three Stories You Can Read to Your Cat, Three More Stories You Can Read to Your Cat by Sara Swan Miller, illus. by True Kelley, highlights scenes every cat-loving kid will recognize. Kitty plays with wrapping paper instead of presents in "Happy Birthday" and "Funny White Stuff" finds him begging to play in the snow (then pleading to come back inside). (Mar.)

Gr 2-4-A worthy successor to the much-loved Three Stories You Can Read to Your Cat (Houghton, 1997). Miller is a master at creating tales that effectively portray the true personality of a feline. With themes of birthday presents, snow, and feeding time, the stories are told from the cat's point of view. Laced with humor, the book is sure to delight children. Although the title and introduction suggest one should settle down with a feline to read the book, non-cat owners will easily savor the fun. Kelley's illustrations portray the lovable pet in all kinds of moods and provide picture clues for the text. A "purr-fect" selection for beginning-reader collections.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
