A little girl and her father search for their wayward cat, Luna, in this cat lovers' picture book. On their walk, they come across cats of all colors, playing together, creeping through flowers, climbing trees, catching mice, and sleeping. The rhythmic text puts an enjoyable toe-tapping beat to their neighborhood walk: "We're after a cat, / a soft-stepping cat, / I'm walking with Dad and we're after a cat. / With me out in front and Dad close behind, / there's a wandering kitty we need to find." Reed's computer-aided artwork is soft and textured, as if drawn with pastels, and the large compositions are child-friendly. The cats have open, smiling faces, and the outdoor settings in which they are found are bright with greens and multicolored flowers. With a happy ending (yes, they find their pet), this is a good read-aloud for kids who love felines.
