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. Yettas 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! Lets 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 kittywho in turn reveals it can teach the parrots a thing or two about latkes. Jill Pinkwaters bright, freestyle drawings are as bighearted and chatty as the multilingual, multi-species text.
