Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—While exploring outside, a much-beloved city cat finds a comfortable couch on which to sleep. Unfortunately, this couch is on the bed of a pickup truck that starts to move, and the startled feline finds herself "cat napped." "Shake cat./Quake cat./There must be/some mistake cat." Realizing the danger, she jumps from the moving truck and injures her foot in the process. A kind woman takes her to the animal shelter, where the cat is soon reunited with her owner. Pencil, watercolor, and acrylic are digitally assembled into colorful illustrations that convey the plot and emotion of this satisfying lost-and-found story. The simple rhyming text makes this a quick read with great appeal.—Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Curious cats can get into lots of trouble, even when napping…. "Kitty cat. / Pretty cat. // Living in the city cat." A fluffy, gray cat and her little girl play happily in their city apartment. "Mosey cat. / Nosey cat. / Curl up nice and cozy cat." When the kitty goes for a stroll, she finds a flatbed truck out front. There's a bright, comfy chair in the sun: the perfect place for a nap. She curls up out of sight, and the truck starts up. The cat that napped has been catnapped! All of the shaking and quaking wake the poor kitty, and when the truck slows down, she jumps out and crashes into a trash can. "Howl cat. / Yowl cat. / Cries a hurt ‘MEEEE-OWL!' cat." A nice lady finds her and takes her to the pound for medical attention. Meanwhile, her little girl is making and posting fliers and calling the local shelters. Will the happy duo be reunited? Hernandez's mixed-media, cartoon illustrations of a wide-eyed cat and her dark-skinned little human extend her spare, rhythmic text, helping to pack a lot of story into few words. Little cat lovers will see themselves and their devoted, playful felines in the tale and easily memorize the words. A cat caper with a happy end for the youngest listeners. (Picture book. 2-5)
