The Lost Kitties are having some eating issues. Some kitties only want to eat fish, others make their hot sauce way too hot, and one kitty can’t get his toaster to work. From tacos to fancy caviar, these hungry kitties need their tummies filled with delicious food!

The illustrations are bright and colorful with adorable kitty characters on every page. I thought the reading skill level was perfect for young readers, and the chapters are short and fun. I liked the silly little problems that the kitties face, and how their kitty friends join in to help solve their difficulties together.

The only part that I didn’t like was the story about Stuffs, the kitty who works as a food critic. He is known for his reputation as a fancy eater, but his secret favorite food is French fries. He gorges himself on massive amounts of French fries. At one point, he eats “…twelve extra large cartons of fries” in one sitting.

His character is obviously overweight in the illustrations, and his eating habits are encouraged by his kitty friends. This is a terrible example for young children, especially with today’s obesity epidemic. This story could have been handled much better, to encourage better eating habits in children. But maybe this story could be used as a ‘teaching moment’ to talk to children about healthy dietary habits.

This whole series is cute, and along with the Hasbro Lost Kitties toys, it’s a wonderful way to get children interested in reading.
