A jaunty, minimal text in combination with bold, black-line drawings that are pleasantly watercolored will introduce youngest listeners to a mischievous and feisty kitten named Barnaby. En route home for supper, he persists in playfully harassing a parade of barnyard animals -- chickens, crows, sheep, horses -- despite his sensible mother's warnings for him to desist. Like many of the young viewer-listeners to this tale, the high-spirited Barnaby is eager to test the limits of his bad behavior. That actions have their consequences is the quiet message of this cheery, handsomely illustrated work.
