Cats! With wings! It’s a pretty short book, but if you like it there are more in the series.

A cute little book about four kittens who are born with wings. They start life in the city, but when that becomes dangerous their mother sends them off to find better living conditions. Luckily they know how to fly, though they have never spent much time in the air. There isn't much rising action, or fear for the characters, so this would be a good book for a reader who wants a chapter book, but not one that will scare them. This one is the first in a series of four books.

All of the catwings tales were highly enjoyable. I was particularly amused by the offense the critters cats hunt took to find cats with wings chasing them.

Mrs. Jane Tabby has delivered four kittens with wings and what wonderful adventures these four have! This is such a fun fantasy for children in Grade 3-4 to read. Sweetly illustrated by S. D. Schindler. I wish I had a cat with wings.

As children my siblings and I would pretend to be cats with wings; little did we know that there was a book out there all about those very creatures. This was a sweet and charming book. The story was interesting and fun. The illustrations are wonderful and I went back to look at them again and again.
