Yetta, the Pinkwaters� inimitable Yiddish-speaking, Brooklyn-dwelling chicken, is back in her second picture book, this time playing figurative mother hen and adoption agency for a stray kitten that she finds lost in a snowdrift. Yetta�s Spanish-speaking wild parrots friends/nest mates are dubious at first: �Es un gato!� they exclaim. �Es iz a kind!� Yetta insists. �Lomir es geb esn� (�It is a baby! Let�s feed it�). But they quickly come around and help Yetta find a good home during Hanukkah (�when the humans are in a good mood�) for the kitty�who in turn reveals it can teach the parrots a thing or two about latkes. Jill Pinkwater�s bright, freestyle drawings are as bighearted and chatty as the multilingual, multi-species text.
