Booklist Review

From the cover crawling with cats to the endpapers showing 37 felines, this is a cat-lover's dream. Told in rhyming text, a bewigged and beribboned queen loves, loves, loves cats. Her affection is obvious feline portraits and objects d'art adorn every room. However, the king's disgruntled face shows his lack of enthusiasm for his wife's cat-infested household. To win him over, the mousers bring him gifts of fish skeletons and dead mice. Stomping off in a huff, the king retaliates by returning with a Great Dane. Does this spell an end to the fun? No indeed, the menagerie finds the canine to be the purr-fect pal! Sanderson's artwork depicts beautiful castle interiors filled with light and gilt and glamor. The queen and king are attired sumptuously, and each cat has its own personality with antics to match. Their various colors and breeds make for a fun romp as children can follow each one as they creep and pounce, play and snuggle, and perform mischievous tricks.--Gepson, Lolly Copyright 2015 Booklist
