City Kitties is a children’s picture book by Rizwan Asad with illustrations by Andy Catling. Its about two adorable cats, Little Mitten and Nessie. Little Mitten is an adorable little kitten and a tad bit mischievous. Nessie, on the other hand, is a more mature and laid back kind of cat. So it’s no surprise that Little Mitten’s attempts to trick Nessie always come up short. His surprise lunges never meet their mark, and Nessie evades each trick with ease. Apart from Little Mitten's shenanigans, the entire story is told in rhyme and takes the young reader on a meaningful journey.

The first thing I noticed whilst reading City Kitties is just how detailed each illustration is. The images are sharp and the colours pop. I also like how cute the cats look in each illustration. I myself prefer cats as pets over dogs, so trust me when I say that these illustrations do a fantastic job of depicting the cuteness of those furry felines. I take my hat off to Andy Catling. He did an amazing job on his illustrations. The rhymes were also catchy and the vocabulary shouldn’t be an issue for children as they’re probably already familiar with most of these words. So parents can rest easy knowing that their kids will love this book. Rizwan Asad has written a good children’s picture book and one that the kids are sure to cherish. City Kitties would be great for parents that want their kids to learn how to read the words on a page. It would also make for a lovely bedtime story so I’d recommend that parents have a look at this book.
