The Lovereading4Kids comment

The search for the perfect cat is a delight. A little girl thinks of all the kinds of cats she doesn’t want – a ‘treat-me-like-a-fool’ cat or a ‘looking-for-a-fight' cat, for example. And then the kind she really does want – “I just want a purry cat./ A small, soft, furry cat.” Each kind of cat is deliciously illustrated and the simple rhyming text makes a perfect refrain.

Synopsis

I Don't Want a Cool Cat by Emma Dodd

A cool cat, a huffy over-fluffy cat, a prowly cat or a howly, yowly, scowly cat? ...children will love imagining what makes the perfect cat -- and what doesn't! With a bouncy, rhyming text that's perfect for reading aloud and witty, vibrant artwork from an award-winning, popular artist this exciting picture book will become a firm favourite in every household.
