So when Ranger meets his little calico cat, who is going to have TWO kittens, he can't wait. He knows though that the only safe place for these two new arrivals is to be the underneath. The small space between the ground and the house. Soon after the kittens come, puck ,the young hero kitten, is curious about the open. if only he had known what curiousity does to cats. If you love sadly endearing stories then the underneath by kathi appelt is the book for you!
