Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Ghigna and Bridgeman offer a rhyming guessing game featuring 10 cats, set against the festive atmosphere of a carnival. Pennants, balloons, lanterns, and confetti adorn Bridgeman's mixed-media illustrations, while readers can turn the pages to complete Ghigna's playful rhymes: "Fluffy fur./ Fun to pat./ Could that be a.../ Persian cat!/ Eyes the size/ of a harvest moon./ Could that be a.../ Great Maine Coon!" Bridgeman's wide-eyed cats can initially be spied peeking through small square frames; page turns reveal them displaying their circus-worthy talents: a tabby cat grins widely as it balances on a ball, and a black Bombay walks a tightrope. Cat lovers of any age should be delighted. Up to age 3. (Sept.) [Page ]. Copyright 2015 PWxyz LLC
