The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse by Miriam NortonFrom this book I learned that kittens who think they are mice are absolutely adorable. Its true - check out the pictures for yourself. I also enjoyed how the story was actually an investigation into that age old question: nature or nurture? Once the kitten discovered he was not a mouse, would his instinctual mouse-hunting needs kick in, or would the love for mice that had been nurtured in him override said instincts? Because this is a kids book, the nurture side of the debate won out. You cant exactly have a cat slaughtering the mouse family that raised him in a Little Golden Book. I was saddened by the fact that he was no longer enough of a mouse to continue living with his mousey-family. He could only stop by for visits. So really, maybe nobody won. Actually, the more I think about it, the more depressing this story is. At least the illustrations were cute.
