Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maggie Chase
If a cat owns you or permits you to live under the same roof as it, you will recognize the illustrations and text of this tiny book. With minimal rhyming text but fully descriptive illustrations of cats draped over window sills, oozing out of dresser drawers, and sprawled contentedly over a tabletop, it is clear that these creatures love their naps and can curl up in the most unlikely places. The book is tiny, almost wordless, and is one of those books that you often find on a turn-around stand in gift shops—a sort of stocking stuffer or gift-topper. It is the kind of book that someone might give a cat lover as a gift or that a young child who fancies cats will enjoy looking at, but it has limited appeal beyond that. Reviewer: Maggie Chase
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Farjeon's hymn to cat behavior (``Cats sleep/ Anywhere,/ Any table,/Any chair,'') is brought to life in Jenkins' humorous, stylized watercolor cartoons. The book is a wonderful combination of clean text and purrfectly matched illustrations. An offering that's the cat's meow. --Kathleen Whalin, formerly at Public Library of Columbus and Franklin County, OH
