A deceptively simple picture book!

Here’s a deceptively simple picture book that’s packed with scientific and artistic concepts.  As a cat moves through the world, the reader views the feline wanderer from the perspective of the many different animals she encounters.  To a human child, the cat is a friendly pal.  On the other hand, the mouse sees her as a fanged and clawed monster.  And to the fox, the cat looks a lot like dinner.

This is a great book to share with readers in the elementary grades, because you can dive into the story behind the story and talk about such subjects as Biology, animal behavior, artistic perspective, and Expressionism.

This would be an excellent companion to The Crocodile’s True Colors by Eve Montanari.
