Product Details


Throughout, mixed-media illustrations are eye-catching and expressive with bold, large forms set against spare backgrounds, making the book a sure bet for storytime success with large groups. You will read this (and reread it, too).
—Kirkus Reviews

Neal’s animals, painted in milky colors, have a folktale look suited to the story’s traditional question-and-answer form and use of repetition…Though the mouse escapes, the biggest surprise is the cat’s transformation from idle observer into glittery-eyed predator. Perhaps that’s the story’s lesson—the right choice is the one that instantly focuses our attention.
—Publishers Weekly

The clear and uncluttered illustrations, combined with a brief text consisting entirely of dialogue, make this ideal for sharing with various-sized audiences. However, be ready for conversations about the open ending and the culinary and predatory habits of specific animals.

The large illustrations make this a natural choice for storytime. Youngsters will love repeating Cat’s question to each animal and joining the feline in its cumulative list of objections. Requests for repeated readings are inevitable.
—School Library Journal
