Ginger the Kitten

Dr. KittyCat #9 Ginger the Kitten. Jane Clarke. 2018. Scholastic. 96 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: It was a beautiful sunny day in Thistletown.

Premise/plot: Dr. KittyCat and Peanut stay busy in the ninth installment of Jane Clarke's early chapter book series. The book opens with Dr. KittyCat giving many animals allergy tests. After all the results are in, it's time for the animals to go on a nature walk. On the nature walk, one animal may just need medical attention. (This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has read even a single book in the series.)

My thoughts: I do enjoy the series. I love the idea of loving the series anyway. They do require a certain suspension of disbelief if you're an adult reader. But I think this animal fantasy series is fun for young readers just starting out. They do have a certain public service announcement vibe going on. This one is all about allergies and allergic reactions.
