Big Cat likes to nap—but his family has other ideas in this beginning reader, now in Spanish!

A pair of rowdy siblings wake up their furry friend to play, and proceed to carry him around the house—no matter how the cat feels about it. They love Big Cat, and it's clear Big Cat loves them, too. . . even if he doesn't love flying or playing dress-up.

With five words or less per page, this story is simple enough to be the first book a child reads on their own—and funny enough to become a favorite. Geisel Medalist Ethan Long's illustrations of the big-bellied feline and his enthusiastic human pals bring Big Cat's adventures to life.
