Trumpet's Kittens, by Carolyn Polizzotto & Sarah Spinks

When Trumpet’s family has to move away, she goes to live with Sarah. Sarah is delighted to have a cat, but is surprised by how much Trumpet eats, until the vet tells her that Trumpet is pregnant.

When Trumpet’s kittens arrive, Sarah and her brother James enjoy watching them grow.

Trumpet’s Kittnes is a warm book for children and cat lovers alike. As well as providing a basic explanation of the cat’s pregnancy and the early days of the kittens, the story of Trumpet is endearing and well complemented by the charming illustrations of Marion Duke.
