This small, square picture book from Ravishankar (Elephants Never Forget) features the tribal and folk artwork of Indian artists. The distinctive cat images range from ornately detailed to sparse, each paired with a line of verse ("Grinning cats/ Cats with scowls/ Chinless cats/ Cats with jowls"). Four stylized "Hurried cats"-that more closely resemble rodents or lizards-spread their claws and hover as though in mid-flight. Simple but clever verse and striking imagery give the book a refined aesthetic. Ages 4-7. (July)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
