Cat Up a Treeby Ann Hassett
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Worried when she spots a cat up a tree, Nana Quimby frantically rings the firehouse for help, only to discover that the fireman no longer rescues cats in trees. What is she to do? She looks out the window again to discover five cats up the tree. And the cats keep coming - too many to count - in all sorts of zany colors, shapes, and sizes. Frantic, Nana Quimby calls the police station, the pet shop, the zoo, and even city hall, but no one will respond to her plea.
Children will love counting all the irresistible cats in John Hassett's lively artwork, as the town that refuses to help finds itself caught in a hilarious quandary and finally learns the importance of lending a hand.
John and Ann Hassett collaborated on We Got My Brother at the Zoo and Charles of the Wild, which Booklist described as humorous, winsome, and cozy.
New York Times Book Review
“This is a pettable and furry little adventure that should make lapsitters as happy as kittens with a ball of yarn.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred
"As much fun for the reader as the listener." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
"The Hassetts' gentle humor and equally light brushwork possess a delicate charm, and the careful Nana ensures that every cat leaves its lofty perch." Publishers Weekly
“Funny and whimsical and engaging . . . . This is a book to read and reread, with cats to count and recount, and little visual details like satellite dishes and mice on windowsills to spot with each new pass.” New York Times Book Review Notable Book

Many of the above were of BloodClan. A few are now at RogueClan. The majority I refuse to rp and about ten a couple others rp. Only three (Light, Vapour, & Mynt), once four (Ripple), are of AshClan. Now, please read part two. Merci.

I enjoy sharing this book with my grandchildren. It is clever and interesting for adults as well as little ones. I gave this book as an adult gift to a person who is a cat advocate. We often read it several times in one sitting. I first heard this book read at a library story time, and I knew I had to own it! I will be checking to see if these authors have other books.
Hajahahaahaaaahahah!!!!!! An¿m¿us h¿t¿r.
