A timeless classic narrated in warm and friendly tones by Bruce Bayley Johnson. A very old couple decide to get a feline friend for companionship, but when the old man finds a hill covered in "hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats", he can't help taking them all home. Unfortunately, the cats "eat each other up" when asked who is prettiest, and the only one left is a scrawny kitten who hid because she didn't think she was in the running. Given the right kind of love and nourishment, she blooms into a beauty. This is a sweet story, and children will love repeating the "millions of cats" refrain.

Classic book, good narration and unobtrusive sound effects. The slide show of illustrations from the book was a nice surprise. I wish all kids books came with them.
The Weston Woods productions for young children are wonderful! Please add more of these and similar productions by Scholastic, etc. (classic picture books with narration) to Audible catalog.
