CATS ARE CATS!
Miss Bell’s new kitten turns out to be a tiger! But cats are cats, and she loves him all the same. This Level D book is perfect for new readers.
One day Miss Bell bought a tiny kitten she named Tiger. He had stripes like a tiger, a tail like a tiger, and a smile like a tiger. He was very cute, and she loved him a lot. But Tiger got bigger. . . and kept getting bigger . . .
Exuberant watercolor illustrations chronicle the transformation of Tiger from tiny kitten to giant jungle beast and his doting owner’s efforts to accommodate his “growing” needs– no matter what the neighbors think– in this funny, warmhearted celebration of unconditional love.
