Synopsis

Kitten has lost her purr, and her mother cannot convince her that it will come back. The little cat sets off in search of her missing sound and stirs up a critter cacophony: Dog woofs, Cow moos, Duck quacks, Pig oinks, Sheep baas, Owl hoots, but no one makes the noise Kitten wants to hear most. Tired and discouraged, she returns to her mother. As she cuddles close for a snug night's sleep, a contented kitten discovers where her purr was hiding all along.

This short, lively story, filled with animal sounds, invites repeated reading and lots of listener participation. Little ones will quack, moo, and hoot right along, through the last satisfying purr, purr.
