Posy 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
GailCooke More than 1 year ago
If one were to draw up a prescription for writing children's books, it would surely include large doses of animal subjects. Children, as we know, are attracted to animals, especially young animals so Linda Newbery was on solid ground when she created Posy, a rambunctious little kitten.

An award winning author, Newbery lives in England with her husband and three cats. If one of them was the model for Posy her household is both happy and busy.

The book is a rhyming diary of Posy's day as she tries in vain to catch a spider, stretches to scratch on the sofa, gets tangled up in a ball of yarn, and does all the things we would expect a kitten to do.

Illustrator Catherine Rayner has created an original, enchanting Posy, almost a Cubist cat, most definitely a Calico. The winner of the 2006 Booktrust Early Years Award for Best New Illustrator in the United Kingdom, Rayner veers from the usual paintings of a cuddly, furry kitten to give us a delightful representation that exudes energy with wiry whiskers, upright tail, and black spot eyes.

Recommended for ages 2 - 5.
