"In school, Piper is known as a 'rowdy' cat".

Out of print for 30 years, and now available from Phaidon press, Tomi Ungerer's short tale of mischief and feline angst is a great choice for the moodiest of 3rd graders. Originally published in 1974, No Kiss For Mother, is a bad tempered meditation on tough love, bad behavior, and cat fights. And somehow, it just cracks me up.
