Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Feline lore and sagacity is succinctly expressed in this collection of 12 captivating paintings. All ages. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 This illustrative marvel illuminates a very simple text, which explains that cats know how to stay warm and cool, how to find the freshest milk and fattest mice, how to bear and care for their young, and how to have fun. The elegant, exciting paintings show sleek tabby cats and kittens enjoying life to the fullest in cozy settings. The technique is realistic yet idealized and decorative, with crisp lines and painstaking detail. The one or two brief sentences of text opposite each full-page picture are bordered in harmonizing patterns: hexagonal pieces from a patchwork quilt, mice peeping through greenery, strips of a bright Oriental rug, etc. The essence of cats, with their charm, humor, grace, quirkiness, practicality, and individuality, is perfectly depicted with affectionate understanding. Children, and adults, too, will enjoy exploring the intricacies of background and behavior. Patricia Pearl, First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, Va.
