Synopsis

Rupert Can Dance by Jules Feiffer

Rupert has a big secret: when his owner, Mandy, is asleep, he dances the night away. One night Mandy catches Rupert mid-dance, and she's thrilled! Thinking she can perfect his skills, she tries to give him dancing lessons - but Rupert is horrified. Lessons are for dogs! Cats do things their own way. Sulking, he refuses to dance, until Mandy comes up with the perfect plan to get his toes tapping again...

Reviews

Feiffer has created a compelling, yet concise, sequential narrative that shows the importance of imagination and being flexible ... A first purchase for cat fans and free spirits everywhere. School Library Journal The free-form illustrations, done in bright strokes of black, ginger, pinks and greens, swirl gracefully about the pages and pop off the white background ... A happy romp for terpischorean cat lovers. Kirkus Reviews Feiffer is at his best drawing the two flying through the air in a cat-and-human pas de deux: it's a quintessentially Feifferian moment. Publishers Weekly Feiffer's familiar, sketchy Magic Marker artwork is especially rough here, compounding the story's already childlike sense of whimsy. The straightforward storytelling, built upon a strong sense of feline behaviors and attitudes, will appeal especially to cat aficionados Booklist
