Publisher's Summary

Ursula K. Le Guin wrote this highly acclaimed novel about a very special litter of kittens. Mrs. Jane Tabby has always longed toget away from the cramped alleys of the city. She knows it is too late for her, but she thinks her longing may be the reason her litter of kittens was born with wings. When they are old enough to fly, she sends the four kittens, who become known as catwings, out into the world to find their home. But they find that danger does not lurk only in city alleyways.

A Childhood Favorite

I absolutely adored these books when I was little! I think they were the first chapter books that I ever read. I was excited when I found these on Audible because not only did I was to revisit them, but I am always looking for books that my 4-year-old daughter will be interested in. I read to her every night, but there are nights that I am either too tired to read much or she doesn't fall asleep after two books. When this happens, I need a book that she likes but isn't so intense that it will keep her awake, and this book fits the bill perfectly. My only complaint is the performance. Ursula K. Le Guin is a great author, but not such an excellent narrator. Her voice is rather flat, and she just isn't the ideal narrator for these books. I have the physical copy of these books and my daughter prefers it when I read them, but she will listen to these when she knows that I'm not up to reading them. I would still recommend the book because the story is lovely, I only wish that they would release a version that has a better narrator. I would recommend this book and the others in the series for children ages 4 - 12.

Review of cat wings

It was too short. I was very surprised at how short it was. I thought she had enough material to have gone on longer. I felt cheated. But that's because I love her stuff, I guess.
