'A Cat Like That' by Wendy Wahman

'A Cat Like That'
By Wendy Wahman
Henry Holt, $16.99, ages 3-5

Often, when children think of a pet, they think of appearance, as in "a cat like that." Suppose that a cat, like that, has its own ideas of how its "best friend in the whole wide world" should act? The cat we see is most often a luscious, dark chocolate brown, standing out against the saturated pastels of almost Marimekko-bright background. (Sometimes the cat is purple, or orange: a cat can dream, yes?) In all the images, the cat's eyes, ears, whiskers and tail are good barometers of how this cat does or doesn't want to be handled. A primer for the young friends of wise felines.
