    " Catwings Return is about them thinking they would visit their mother. They went on an adventure to try to find her. When they go they kept looking for her until they find a cat with wings that their mother had. They thought it could be a trace back to their mother or it could be their mother. "

    " I like when Harriet and James flew away from the barn to the city to meet their mother for a visit. And I like when they had a little nap and then a very loud noise woke them and it was a crane and a metal ball bashing down buildings. And I like when everything was quiet and no noise at all came. And I like when there was a tiny quiet sound, "Me." I like when it bashed a metal ball in there and James saw the little kitten and then it bashed a hole in the building. And the kitten had wings and the other ones had wings -- that's why it's called "catwings." And then Harriet closed her jaws right on the tip of the little kitten's neck and carried her off. First the kitten was very gentle but then the kitten started twisting. I like when the kitten twisted right off under a street filled with whizzing cars. And I like when the kitten spread out its wings and soared out into the sky. And I like when they flew and then the kitten got a little bit tired. And then James flew under the kitten and let it land on his wings. I like when they got home in a garden filled with flowers and the mother cat was waiting. And I like when the mother curled up next to its kitten. And I like when she told a story about when her kitten had started jumping off things, trying to fly down. And I like when they flew at night but that was the hardest because then they all got tired and they had to rest lots of times - even more than day because nighttime is so when you sleep. And I like when they got to the barn again and I like when the little kitten fell on its side and wriggled. And I like when two nice human children got some milk for the kitten and I like when one little sister said, "What do you think that kitten's name is?" "Me?" that's what the kitten said. "Mimi," is what one human said. But the other human said, "I don't think Mimi; I think Jane." And I like when it splattered milk all over its little black face and then it had a bath. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta | 1/24/2014

    " This, the 2nd in the series of Catwings books, is also charming. I've enjoyed them all--stories and illustration--but I think my favorites are the first one and the last. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/9/2014

    " Absolutely heartwarming, just like the first book. I feel compelled to buy these for some child, maybe one of my nieces. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/7/2014

    " I had no idea when I read this as a kid that it was a sequel. Still a really cute book even as a stand alone story. "

    " These are short, sweet books. Loved the second one as much as the first. "

    " Catwings #2 of 4 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/30/2013

    " My #2 son enjoyed this one as much as the first one. He wanted the kittens to find their mom again because he did not understand why they really had to leave in the first book. He's excited to start the third! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 8/2/2013

    " More winged cats. There must be something to write here about the semi-mute kitten Jane. Her limited vocabulary of Me! and HATE nearly perfectly captures the life of a kitten. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 2/28/2013

    " I like this Catwings book much better than its predecessor. There's a poignancy to it that the first one lacked. A small black kitten crying "Meee" just wrings the heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 12/1/2012

    " It is just like the first one, but with more drama! I am very curious to find out what happens next. "

    " This one was just as nicely done as the first. Beautiful, detailed illustrations with a story that flows, and also very accurately depicts the nature of cats. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 2/25/2012

    " Got this from a school book fair. I really don't know how I ended up picking some of the books I did. Oh well. Got this. It was an odd book with an odd subject and characters. Should have guessed from the title that it was a sequel. Might have explained some of my confusion. "
