A daring, dinosaur-climbing adventure leads to hilarious kitty hijinks in this adorable tale of perseverance

They're adorable! They're daring! They're kitties who love to climb things! And they won't give up until they've achieved their ultimate climbing dream: scaling the dinosaurs on nearby Dinosaur Island. The level-headed narrator warns the kitties that the dinosaurs look hungry, that their teeth are super big, that things look terribly bleak if they go through with climbing the dinosaurs. But these kitties have a plan. And then another plan. And then another...well, you get the idea. Can these fair kitties conquer their biggest challenge yet and avoid cat-astrophe?
"Slack’s jokey, cajoling narration adds to the fun of this silly romp. The digitally painted illustrations of round-eyed kitties and toothy cartoon dinos will entice fans of both to read or listen." —Kirkus

"Textured, motion-focused digital art in mellow tones complements the feisty, big-eyed kitties’ nonstop action. An absurd conceit bolsters a lively story that encourages ambition, tenacity, creative problem-solving, and cuddling." —Publishers Weekly
