A tiny, bedraggled kitty is found tucked beside a frozen pond, and nursed back to health on a nearby farm. But when he is fit enough to join the other animals, he turns out to have a very unusual idea of who his mother is.

Certainly cute and cuddly enough, but something about it just didn't do a whole lot for me. Sorry I can't say why - I just can't put my finger on it. I have read the four All Things..." books and enjoyed them - about 30 years ago. " ( )

Moses the kitten is found by James Herriot and brought to a neighboring farm. He finds a family in the newly born piglets and their mother the sow. A heart-warming story about finding one's place in life. I love the James Herriot books for adults, and it was fun to find that some of his stories have been broken down for young readers. This would be a great story to share when talking about adoption, or accepting others that are different.
