When the Silliest Cat Was Small by Gilles Bachelet


When the Silliest Cat Was Small by Gilles Bachelet

Gilles Bachelet's cat behaves like any normal cat - sleeping, eating, getting in the way, making a mess - but in this warm and funny picture book he happens to be...a very large elephant.In this story, Bachelet recounts choosing his cat as a kitten, and how the cat got used to living with him. When he's lonely, Bachelet gets him a new friend, but the kitten doesn't quite take to his new buddy. It's funny and sweet, just like the first book.
