Aunt Nina's Visit
Receive the latest news & reviews direct to your inbox!
Aunt Nina must surely be every child's idea of the perfect aunt: her timely arrival not only provides the desired audience for the cousin's puppet show, but a basket of kittens too. The latter do create something of a distraction during the performance; in fact they turn out to be real show stoppers, stealing the show in more ways than one; but the children are delighted when at the end they each receive a pet of their own. The illustrations are full of delightful, amusing domestic details, each scene abounding with energy and fun.
