Synopsis of “The Kitten That Hopped”: Wicket Cricket Katydid, the most handsome creature in Oklahoma, in fact the most handsome creature in the United States, in fact the most handsome creature in the universe, would never consider eating a bird. The whole idea of Wicket having a bird for a meal is disgusting. Yet not a hour goes by that Wicket does not have to worry about a bird having him for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Perhaps Wicket is cursed because he is so handsome, but still it is unjust that Wicket, who has never ever bothered a bird, must be on guard for birds every minute of every day of his life. It is completely unfair that birds won’t leave Wicket alone! One day Wicket can stand it no longer and hops through the tall weeds of the nature preserve until he finds an area of human lawns. There Wicket pulls out a bullfighter’s cape and dares a bird, knowing that he, Wicket, is the greatest jumper in Oklahoma. In fact Wicket is the greatest jumper in the United States, in fact the greatest jumper in the universe, and can easily leave any stupid bird searching the air beneath Wicket. Unfortunately, as Wicket Cricket Katydid is hopping away from a pursuing bird, he lands in a kitten’s mouth.
