Staff Reviews

I would get these books for the covers alone, but the stories are actually every bit as cute as the cover kittens! Tasha, Bianca, Boris, and Pete live in the basement of a museum, along with dozens of aunts, uncles, and cousins, and they are training to join the family business--controlling the rat and mouse population at the museum. But they are curious kitties and find more scrapes than mice! They work together to figure things out and always stick together! Cute stories of teamwork.

When the museum's visitors are gone for the day, it's time for the kittens to come out and play! This new chapter book series by best-selling author Holly Webb is inspired by tales of real-life museum cats and follows the after-hours adventures of the Museum Kittens. Includes black-and-white illustrations throughout.

One stormy night, a little black kitten named Peter appears on the museum steps. Tabby cat Tasha is delighted to show Peter the museum's hallways and secret corners, but her siblings, Bianca and Boris, aren't as happy to welcome the new arrival. Determined to prove that Peter is just as much of a museum kitten as the others, Tasha takes him on a hunt for rats. When there's a mishap in the Dinosaur Gallery, all of the kittens must work together to fix the situation. Can they do it?

In this new series from best-selling author, Holly Webb, the Museum Kittens are brave, clever, and never more than a whisker away from adventure! When the museum's visitors are gone for the day, it's time for the kittens to come out and play!
