Synopsis

Here Comes the Cat! by Frank Asch

In 1986, two artists--one Russian, one American--joined forces, against the odds, to tell a brand new kind of picture story. In Here Comes the Cat!, a single mouse runs around shouting HERE COMES THE CAT! again and again--in both English and Russian--until everybody he knows is worried sick. Just when the tension can't get any tenser, the cat arrives...with a giant wheel of cheese! A big party breaks out and everyone--the reader included--laughs a huge laugh of relief. Funny, whip-smart, and illustrated in mesmerizing detail, Here Comes the Cat! is a parable about fear, more relevant than ever, that follows in the great tradition of Chicken Little. McSweeney's proudly presents this deluxe new edition, complete with a fold-out dust-jacket, on the 25th anniversary of the book's conception.
