Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
The new cat on the block creates havoc during Archie and Peter's planned entertainment for their friends. "You're well rid of a cat like that," says Archie's mother. But, the accompanying picture shows the cat patiently waiting outside on the doorstep, while Archie says, "I think that cat just kinda liked me!" We suspect this story is not really over! First published in 1970, Keats's book still looks fresh and new, its bold brush strokes, bright colors, and collages of painted paper, newsprint, and bits of fabric perfectly expressing the energy and rough edges of the inner city streetscape. The spare text that encourages the reader to make connections and interpretations also seems just right for today's young readers. 1998 (orig.

Meet the Author

Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats (1916–1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children’s classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats’ legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter—the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.

    The illustrations in this book are wonderful. Young readers will

    The illustrations in this book are wonderful. Young readers will enjoy looking at the illustrations while reading the story. It is a cute story about how a little boy talks to a cat and everything that happens to him after that goes wrong. He blames it on the cat. A great read for children. I would definitely recommend this book to parents and teachers.

    Come Follow me...

    Jack Keats does a great job with this book, a simple story with no main purpose it serves as a great short story for kids. This story tells of a boy named Archie who simply says Hi, Cat! to a stray cat sitting near by as he passes to go play with his friends. Through out Archie's day the cat appears to be near and follows him, eventually ruining his performances for his friends. Archie ends his day with an explanation to his mother about his day's events. The illustrations are vivid and plenty bringing the story to life. I loved this short story and would recommend it.

    A Favorite!!!

    When I was very little (I am 40 now) my Dad used to read this to me and I loved it. The pictures like all of Ezra Jack Keats books are just beautiful. The story is delightfule as well. As is all of his books. If you have never read one of Mr. Keats' books this is a good one to start with.
