Pinky's parents have called a family meeting. They want to decide what kind of pet they will have. Pinky wants a dog; his little sister Amanda wants a cat. The parents also vote for a cat. So the very next day the family gets a kitten. Although Amanda gives the kitten hugs and says it is hers, the kitten has other plans. It's not long before Pinky and the playful kitten share a secret--one that could hurt Amanda's feelings. What should he do? James Howe's Pinky and Rex books are praised by parents and teachers alike for their ability to charm young readers. These chapter books teach gentle lessons about family relationships and friendship, and narrator Christina Moore brings just the right tone to each story.
