"The cat walked through the world,
with its whiskers, ears and paws..."
When you see a cat, what do you see?
In Brendan Wenzel's new book, They All Saw a Cat, the reader is taken through a number of curious observations from different perspectives. A child, a dog, a fox, a fish—they all see the cat. Each character has a different reaction to the cat: the dog, for instance, acts in defense; the fish is worried; the child, amused. And, like Wenzel says, "The cat knew them all, and they all knew the cat."
This delightful book helps young readers discover what it's like to see the same thing from different perspectives in all walks of life. The curious cat loves to wonder, and he certainly has many living things witnessing his adventures. Wenzel's own beautiful illustrations match the narration of the traveling cat well. You and your little ones will enjoy reading the rhythmic They All Saw a Cat aloud during storytime.
