"Exuberantly rendered in Cabrera’s signature bold, painterly style, the vibrantly colored full-bleed animals look almost touchable while bright, patterned backgrounds saturated with color make the hugging duos pop off the page. . . . Lap-sit readers will eagerly snuggle up for their own cuddles."—Kirkus Reviews
"This hits the mark for very young children on laps or in groups. . . . awfully cute."—Booklist
"Cabrera's trademark eye-catching, lush colors are used to full advantage on every page. . . . youngsters will be riveted by the bold pictures and find comfort in Kitty's predictable exploits."—School Library Journal
