The Lovereading4Kids comment

In bold pictures and a simple text, Jackie Morris brings alive Cat who, when asleep in the day, dreams of being all kinds of other cats. Sometimes she’s a lion lounging in the heat of the day; sometimes she’s a cheetah sprinting after prey in the hot desert; sometimes she’s proudly atop a rock in the snowy wastes. Always, Cat is a proud and stupendous creature. Large format pictures capture the magnificence of all cats in many different settings.

Synopsis

I am Cat by Jackie Morris

A cat sleeps, curled up in a warm place, and while it sleeps it dreams...of being a tiger, flame cat of the forest; a cheetah - fast as the wind on the African plains; a lion, lounging through the heat of the day, tangled in sunshine on the African savannah; a jaguar, perfectly camouflaged deep in the jungle. And the cat dreams of being a lynx, a puma, a snow leopard, a Scottish wild cat, an Asian fishing cat, and the rare Amur leopard. Finally Cat wakes, a domestic cat again, telling his dreams to the child who is stroking him. Ten wild habitats, ten wild cats and one domestic cat are dramatically and beautifully illustrated in this unique celebration of the cat.
