It’s time to play with the cats in this – Tiny, Moonpie and André. All you have to do is turn the pages. PS There are fish in this book too.
CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal SHORTLIST 2010: Judges’ comments
An enticing book, which makes a real statement and holds a lovely conversation with the reader. The cats are very expressive, the flaps are varied and not too obvious, and the graphics are uncontrived and cleverly used. A charming book to use with young children.
The LoveReading Comment:
A glorious celebration of everything feline! Open the flaps and overlapping pictures to play with the wittily drawn, fast-talking cats who pop out ready for action. More of an experience than a simple story, this book is fun to play with! It really is a lift-the-flap book with a difference and really deserves to have made the shortlist for the prestigious Greenaway Medal.
There are Cats in This Book by Viviane Schwarz
If you're feeling feline-friendly, this may be just the novelty book for you. When did you last play with cats...inside a BOOK?! The cats in this book want to have fun, and by turning the pages and flipping the flaps YOU can play their favourite games with them! Tiny, Moonpie and Andre love wool to tangle with, cardboard boxes to hide in, pillow fights...and fish! But where there are fish, there is also water - lots of it. So who's going to rescue the cats from the giant floodwave? You are, of course!
The great thing about this is that it is more than a one-joke story and works on several different levels... It is a very clever book - and enormous fun. The
