    " I read this series when I was really little. But I absolutely loved cats back then (well, I still do!) and for me this was just about the best series ever. If I looked back and read it now, I'd probably finish it in 20 minutes and think it was pretty boring. But if you know someone who is just beginning to read short chapter books and they love animals, give them a book from this series and they will just eat it up! ;) "

    " I was reading this series to my 4-year-old son and he really enjoyed the first couple, but this one taught me that I need to pre-read books even if I think I know the author and her style. The young cat Jane has had a trauma so terrifying that it causes her to become mute except to say "me," and when she's scared, "hate!" My son was (and still is) very tenderhearted and easily worried. I tried to edit as I read, but it was rather difficult. In the end, we had a long talk about what hate is, why rats would be so terrifying, and what it means to be traumatized to the point of being unable to speak. I tried to explain that animals don't hate one another and that there is nothing evil about rats. It was all way over his head, but we managed to get through it. I know that even the first couple books were a little old for him, given the realistic themes of animals attacking one another and leaving their parents so early, but I do think that this book was a departure. It added a psychological dimension that was beyond having to explain that some animals are predators and some are prey. Also, by introducing hate as an animal trait, I felt like it was a forcing an anthropomorphism that didn't fit with the other books. "

    " Wonderful Alexander and the Catwings adds another cat (without wings) to the gang. He also teaches Jane, the youngest Catwing, to talk. He's a fun character -- overconfident, gets a bit of a comedown (literally, actually -- Jane has to help him climb down a tree). "
