The image of the cat changes, sometimes quite dramatically, to reflect this perspective – it appears as a terrifying beast to a mouse, but a big furry home for a flea.

A Caldecott Honor book, this is a lovely story that provides a great starting point for both young and older readers to talk about how we can all view the same things very differently.
