Book Trailer Premiere THREE LITTLE KITTENS
KidLit TV is proud to premiere the book trailer for THREE LITTLE KITTENS, written and illustrated by Barbara McClintock!
A classic nursery rhyme gets a makeover from a master of visual storytelling
By BARBARA MCCLINTOCK
Make way for the three little kittens who lost their mittens—as you’ve never seen them before! Who will be able to resist wailing along with the naughty little kittens as they lose their mittens? And who won’t relish rejoicing with the good little kittens as they find and wash their mittens—and earn their pie—as well as a loving hug from their mama?
Barbara McClintock presents this classic favorite in a comic book art style that is a departure from her trademark style. Kirkus Reviews raved that “McClintock’s feline portraits pack plenty of personality. A sprightly and charming modern take on a traditional rhyme.”The Three Little Kittens encourages full reader participation; the original twist to the ending is a warm embrace of kindness and empathy to strangers.
