A while back I read the first book in the Kitty Sweet Tooth series, called Kitty Sweet Tooth (appropriate I feel). The story was simple, a cat named Kitty Sweet Tooth helps run Pop-Pops movie theater. There are a few adventures, she makes lots of new friends and the movie theater takes on a new life. Then, it ended, letting us know a sequel was coming. I figured I would read it before it came out, but there was nothing for reader copies (online like I had read book one or physical). Eventually, I did find an online reader, but lost the link. However, recently I found a link again. I mean, for book two which is called Kitty Sweet Tooth Makes a Movie.
And this time author Abby Denson and illustrator Utomaru made a story that was maybe not as strong as book one, but equally fun in its own way. We have our friends from book one who are happy helping each other at the theater, but now Kitty wants to make movies, and not just show them and serve wonderful snacks. She decides to make a movie about her adventures finding some very special foods for new snacks. Things work quickly, we bounce from ocean to desert to jungle to the moon within seconds. Who knows how long things take in reality, but this is a book for kids ages six to ten. It is a fantasy! It is silly! It is a very pink and pastel and colorful graphic novel! Who needs reality?
I know these books will not become classics (even with a recipe included at the end), but they are a great way to get your stereotypical “girly girl” reading. Of course, anyone can read them, but it just falls into a “this is girl stuff” attitude. After reading both volumes, but you have not read Batcat Book 1 by Meggie Ramm, please do so as they have similar tones, but are also different enough to not be reading the same story.
