There are Cats in this Book

Review

Schwarz has created a simple story about a familiar situation, so that the very youngest readers can learn how to move through a book, turning the pages and lifting the flaps.

The cats investigate boxes, play with wool and snuggle down under pillows and blankets, with much of the action revealed under the flaps.

Cleverly, the resolution to one page is usually found on the next, and there is constant encouragement to turn over to discover it.

Combining energetic, minimal drawings, with the cats directly addressing their readers via speech bubbles, Schwarz tells us not only about cats and their habits but also about the compulsive and interactive nature of enjoying books.
