Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Cat lovers will adore this sprightly collection of poems, which honor the mysteries of that ``Affectionate fellow Occasional grouch,'' the cat. Poems by such writers as Karla Kuskin, Valerie Worth, John Ciardi, Eleanor Farjeon and X. J. Kennedy are beautifully illustrated in black-and-white by Hyman, whose cats ``sleep fat and walk thin'' on orange-bordered pages. The poems tell of cats lost, cats loved and cats observedof the alley cat who ``loved/ (as much as she loved anthing at all)/ a garbage can,'' and Miss Tibbles who lies like a ``fur ring'' on a little girl's lap until she wonders, ``Is it me or Tibbles purring?'' Like a sketch book from a master artist, Hyman's drawings show cats from every angle; they paw at snowflakes, leave tracks ``like dark fern seed,'' roll in catnip, walk on ``on marshmallow paws,'' and they will beguile cat lovers of all ages. Ages 5-8. (April)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 6 This successful collaboration from Livingston and Hyman provides a selection of 19 cat poems by noted poets Eve Merriam, John Ciardi, Karla Kuskin, and others. Six poems were commissioned for this book; the others appear in previously published works, a few of which are out of print. Two of the poems also appear in Lee Bennett Hopkins' anthology, I Am the Cat (HBJ, 1981). Varied styles, rhymes, meters, and moods are executed in the poems about the habits and adventures of cats. Hyman's deft pencil drawings animate the mischievous antics of the felines, creatively contained within simple brown ink borders. Her drawings are as fluid in movement as a cat. Cat lovers who enjoyed following the cats throughout Hyman's Little Red Riding Hood (Holiday, 1982) will delight in their full treatment here. Libraries owning Hopkins' collection or Arnold Lobel's Whiskers & Rhymes (Greenwillow, 1985) will still want to consider this enjoyable collection. Cynthia K. Dobrez, Oak Lawn Public Library, Ill.
