How does Peacock cuddle? Feathery and bright. How does Big Bear cuddle? Safe and fluffy. Kitty is trying out all different kinds of animals' cuddles. But which is his favorite? The soft, warm snuggle of his baby brother. Welcoming a new addition into the family has never been cozier.Main character Kitty is a fun-filled kitten who scampers through the world sharing her cuddles with all her friends. But whose cuddles does she love best? Kitty reaches out to unusual friends, cuddling with a mouse and a bird (a colorful peacock). She also visits animals friends in their homes--a frog in a pond and a monkey in a treetop. Truly unusual friends for a kitten are included, as well as Kitty-cuddles with an elephant and an octopus. But as young readers watch Kitty make her visits, who is the favorite friend to cuddle? Cabrera's vibrant illustrations have a gentle cartoonlike quality, with whimsical characters that come alive on the page. The bright colors and simple lines are sure to appeal to young readers, and the simple backgrounds make Kitty and her friends stand out. A couple of funny and imaginative illustrations come toward the end of the book when the soft kitten cuddles with a prickly porcupine and an unusual looking armadillo. Children will enjoy guessing who will be the best cuddle of all.

Booklist Review: "A simply drawn Kitty with an orange ring around one eye likes to cuddle. But who is her favorite friend to snuggle with? Tiny Mouse, with its teen-weeny cuddle? Feathery Peacock, with its bright cuddle? Or Spiky Porcupine, who offers a careful prickly cuddle? With its simple text, this hits the mark for very young children on laps or in groups. Each animal cuddle is framed in a two-page spread, with the animals taking up most of the space. The charming art has the look of the sort done by a talented child; colorful, subtly designed backgrounds will remind kids of their own work with finger paints. Only the end slightly disappoints. It's Baby Brother who gives the best cuddles, but some children might have expected a child more like them. Still, awfully cute. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2007 Booklist"
