Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A simple game of cat and mouse--make that cat and bird--springs to life in this slight picture-book rendition of a Mother Goose rhyme. The brief text, about feline pursuit of an elusive robin, allows one line of verse per spread. Close-up perspectives permit the reader a bird's-eye view of the proceedings, while bright cut-paper collages add zip to basic animal characters and various plants and flowers. Very young children will enjoy the introduction to poetry here, but kids at the upper range of the suggested audience will want something with more heft. Ages 3-5. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-This simple little rhyme that stretches back more than two centuries is given a bright new look through a series of painted collages. The very brief text follows a clever bird as it eludes a wily cat. The images are bold, filled with brilliant colors, and enhanced by the textures of the paper and paint. Readers may be reminded of Eric Carle's vivid style. This one is perfect for sharing with toddlers, who will quickly learn the rhyme and enjoy ``singing'' along. Lap-sit programs will appreciate the generously sized spreads.-Virginia E. Jeschelnig, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH
