The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal.

The Judges said: A book that perfectly expresses the power of the imagination! With an extraordinary sense of participation, this is book to play with as much as to read, and very much one to share. The illustrations are full of personality, the use of colour and blank space is brilliant. A book that works on lots of different levels.

--------

An entertaining tease of a story that is full of surprises. There are cats in the books – but they are longing to get out of it. Readers will enjoy the cats’ attempts at disappearing – and their joyful reappearance too. An original piece of story telling which makes interesting use of the pages.

Synopsis

There are No Cats in This Book by Viviane Schwarz

This is a charming picture book with fantastic pop-out and photographic features, featuring three of the most lovable cats around. Our furry friends from There Are Cats in This Book - Tiny, Moonpie and Andre - have returned, and this time they are filled with the spirit of adventure - they are off to see the world! They have their suitcases packed and are ready to set off - but they can't seem to get out of the book. They try pushing their way out, and jumping their way out but nothing works. Finally they decide to wish themselves out and they are going to need your help! This title is from the uniquely talented creator of Shark and Lobster's Amazing Undersea Adventure.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
