What People are saying about this

Dave Eggers
"This is an underappreciated classic. It follows a cat on his nightly journey through a farm and the surrounding area, all the while comparing what humans see to what a cat sees. Artwork is always important to me - I grew up wanting to be a children's book illustrator - and this has some of the boldest pictures of any picture book. The drawings, like Matisse cutouts, show what a human sees (black silhouettes against gunmetal blue skies) and then what a cat sees (pinks and greens and yellows). Kids feel close to animals - there's a natural kinship - so seeing the world through a cat's eyes has a certain primal appeal."--(Dave Eggers, award-winning author ("What is the What," "Zeitoun"), editor, journalist, publisher and screenwriter)
