Overview

Antics in the attic with little cat.

When its owner goes up to the attic, this curious little cat follows right behind. There, it has to maneuver itself in, up, and around the jumble of stored items. Too crowded among the boxes, cat takes a little climb; when a pile of clothes proves to be too lumpy-bumpy, cat takes a little leap; and when a swinging lampshade is too tippy, cat takes a little slide to get off.

Very young children will love the antics of the adorable cat as it explores the crowded attic. Little will they realize that they are also honing their language skills as the repetitive word pattern based on "too" plus adjectives takes them through various parts of speech.

With its companion title, Dog Comes Too, this board book will delight any toddler who loves animals -- and books!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A cat follows its owner into the attic, and occasionally gets in over its head. “Too crowded. Little climb. Too small. Little push,” writes Hutchins as the cat peeks from behind a cluster of shoeboxes or out the neck of a red shirt on a hanger. Getting stuck in the laundry basket turns out to be a mixed blessing, as the cat inadvertently helps its owner find the exact item she was looking for. “Never too little to help,” reads the closing line, which will have extra meaning for young readers. Ages 2–5. Simultaneously available: Dog Comes Too. (Apr.)
Canadian Materials - Dave Jenkinson
[A] worthy addition to the shelves of libraries that serve the toddler crowd. Highly recommended.
Resource Links - Lara Chauvin
(with Dog Comes Too) This two book series...will have the little ones want to come to read too.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Someone is headed up to the attic and seems to be looking for something special. On each page the cat (which looks more like a kitten) finds things too crowded, too lumpy—umpy, too tippy or too swingy. Finally, this curious little cat falls into a basket of clothing and she is unable to get out by herself. Once discovered, the person who started this attic adventure is very pleased because the blue shirt she was looking for has been found. At the end of this adventure, mistress, cat and blue shirt head back downstairs. Young readers will enjoy spotting little mouse who watches all the action. The text is designed to hone language skills as the word patterns based on "too" takes them through various parts of speech. The illustrations are rather fanciful and the illustrator not only specializes in children's books but also greeting cards, maps and fine art. A companion book is entitled Dog Comes Too.

This is a cute board book that young toddlers will love. It features bright, colorful pages with a sweet little cat. The simple story will help teach your toddler the basic meaning of words, such as ‘Too Tipsy’ and ‘Too Swingy’. Recommended for ages 0-3.

I don't think this book could be any cuter than it is. But that is just the frosting on the cupcake. This simple board book also helps build language skills in little ones as they follow the cat's exploits around the attic. Adorable illustrations and a short, simple story.
