School Library Journal - 03/01/2013 K-Gr 2—"Leopold von Kittenkatt/Is a conductor oh so grand./He leads a special orcatstra,/With cats from every land." So begins the first of many cat puns. Leopold has lost his baton. He speaks with the various mewsicians, who each play an instrument from their country. Some are appropriate, others are rather random. The Australian didgeridoo and the Cuban conga drum are fine, but the cello did not originate in Russia, or the oboe in Poland. Back matter includes a picture glossary giving more information about each instrument. The text reads fairly smoothly. The cookie-cutter, old-school, Disney-esque illustrations are the weak point here. An additional purchase.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
