Product Details

Praise

Magerl’s watercolor-and-ink illustrations bear a striking resemblance to Quentin Blake’s or Charlotte Voake’s art, with their loose lines and whimsical sensibility…A cozy, quirky read.
—Kirkus Reviews

With atmospheric watercolor washes and an indomitable and eccentrically styled protagonist, this is a story that even those skeptical of feline charms will find easy to love.
—Publishers Weekly

The text in this Australian import is rife with onomatopoeia (“thunketty thunk”) and fun-to-say phrases (“oily silver morsel”) with a lyrical cadence that would be enjoyable to read aloud. The gloomy, muted palette of the illustrations and wayward, sketchy raindrops on each page make this a great pick to accompany a rainy day.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Magerl’s charming watercolor pictures make this title especially memorable.
