Highway Catsis a story about three little kittens who have the audacity to survive a harrowing trip across a busy highway. The hardened highway cats aren't much interested in them, since they are so small and helpless, but Shredder begins to see something extraordinary about them. Particularly when they miraculously help the other cats to protect their homes from being demolished.
This book was a quick and thoughtful book. The theme was clear, but not overbearing (I think). I loved the illustrations - they were perfect! There wasn't much "character" development - I wished there had been more about some of the other cats, particularly Khalia Koo, but it was a fun little book, particularly for young cat-lovers.
(although, there is some mention of cats getting squashed on a highway)
