Reviews

Full-color art...suits each cheerful scene with concise and simple text displayed in bright yellow font. ...Jim adds practicality along with feline flair as he complete his rounds with a final statement. 'I like my home. Meow.

's abode is a welcome place for all who enter. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Short and accessible. ...The eye-catching digital artwork uses vibrant colors, simple shapes, and bold patterns to create pictures with a childlike look. Another ideal read-aloud choice from Byron Barton. -- Booklist Barton crafts his story with preschoolers firmly in mind, providing just enough tension ( I hear a noise downstairs ) and plot twists to keep things interesting; his signature shapes and bold colors are a perfect match for the clean, brief, straightforward text. -- The Horn Book The very short sentences and simple vocabulary make this perfect for a toddler or preschool audience but also accessible to beginning readers. The bold, blocky illustrations...are childlike in their rendering...cat-loving kiddos will find this installment in Barton's oeuvre especially attractive. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books'
