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.

Parker is as charming, smart, and ingenious as Ferris Bueller--and he needs a Day Off too. But his plan for a carefree summer is foiled when he is sent to work on a farm to pay for the damage he caused to get him out of his last (very brief) summer job. But what is so special about the radishes they are growing - and how did that cow get on the barn roof?? A delightful tale of magic and growth--for humans and radishes alike.
