"It's not fair!" is Kitty's plaintive cry. Why is she the shortest in her class? Why can't anyone in her family take a joke? Why can't she go to bed as late as the boy next door? Why don't holidays last forever? When one day Kitty's mother echoes Kitty's cry of "It's not fair" Kitty thinks up a brilliant idea...
It's not Kitty's fault when she's late for school and Dad crashed into the gatepost! It's not Kitty's fault that baby Tom crawls into trouble or that she's getting too old to sit on Dad's knee! And it's certainly not Kitty's fault that her boring cousin Melissa can't make friends at school! But for some reason Kitty feels that it is.
The only thing Kitty's friends want to do is to watch TV. Dad's busy and Mum has a new baby. What can Kitty do to stop everyone being so boring? Mooney takes this common childhood complaint and creates a touching, warm and insightful story from it.
Kitty's favourite word is no! She doesn't want to clean her teeth, eat her vegetables or play with boring Melissa. She can't stop saying no, but when Dad tells her he doesn't want to hear her say yes, she discovers that's what she does want to say!

"Love it as much as the kids"
Do you ever say, 'so what!'? Sometimes Kitty doesn't seem to care about anything. Sometimes she is just pretending she doesn't care. Is she bothered about her homework, her baby brother, or her teddy, Mr. Tubs? What do you think? Kitty doesn't like a fuss, but the truth is, she does care about a lot of things and making her friends happy is just one of them.
The 12th Kitty story from best-selling author Bel Mooney.
William had got a new bike for his birthday, and Kitty wanted one more than anything in the world. 'I wish it was mine - oh, I wish it was mine,' she said to herself, over and over again. In this eighth great book about Kitty, she wishes that her friend's bike was hers, that her brother would go away, that she was pretty and grown up ... and, above all, that wishes come true!
Kitty always seems brave and tough, but really she gets scared like everyone else. All sorts of things are frightening for her and her friends from monsters and ghosts to the audience at the school play. And one day Kitty finds out that even her older brother gets scared too and she can help!
Nothing could stop Kitty feeling miserable. So miserable, that when Mum went downstairs to make her some hot blackcurrant juice, Kitty turned to cuddle Mr. Tubs and made him all wet with her tears. 'Why me? Why me?' she sobbed. Kitty learns that things do go wrong for her, her family, and her friends, but that it's at times like these that what really matters is having each other and, for Kitty, still being able to make others laugh.
Kitty decides as she gets older that she knows certain things. The trouble is, grown-ups keep treating her like a baby and she is sick of it. So Kitty sets out to prove how much she knows - and gets one or two surprises. This is the sixth book about Kitty from the popular author Bel Mooney.
