Where Is Little Reynard? by Joyce Carol Oates, illus. by Mark Graham, stars Lily and the Smith family from their Come Meet Muffin!, plus the orange runt of a litter of kittens. Little Reynard is the odd furball out (""His sisters laughed at his unusual color. And his brothers teased him because he was so small. This made him shy""). But when he spies a family of foxes, he is emboldened by the fact that the cubs share his burnt-orange coloring, the kitten is soon scampering through the forest with his new friends. (Sept.)
