Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Carle must be a cat fancier since he dedicates this book to all the cats in his life. Each thick cardboard page had a pull out slide. A young boy is pictured in each scene and he is hunting for his cat. This search takes him on a trip around the world, and everywhere that he stops, he makes the same inquire of those he meets. "Have you seen my cat?" They in turn just point to the tab and when it is pulled out a cat is displayed. These are not ordinary cats. There are leopards, cheetahs, tigers, etc. and in each case, the young boy replies "This is not my cat." It seems a bit sad, that he cannot locate his cat. However, the final picture points to the back cover and when the covers are spread open, the cat on the cover must belong to the boy and she has disappeared because she apparently just had a litter of kittens. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

The combination of Carle's unique cut-paper collage pictures and easy to read text make it a great story for even the youngest children.
