9780140567670: The Cat Barked

A charming carrot-colored cat wants to walk on the wild side -- as a dog. But do dogs really have the upper paw? This confused kitty thinks so, at least until her helpful owner proves that life as a feline really is the cat's pajamas. Lydia Monks' bouncy rhymes and inventive collage illustrations are purr-fect for young pups and kittens.

About the Author:

Lydia Monks is one of the best-loved illustrators of today. Her first picture book title, I Wish I Were a Dog, won the Smarties Bronze Award in 1999. Since then, her many picture books include No More Eee-orrhh!, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Gorilla! and the much-loved Aaaarrgghh, Spider! (Egmont), and various titles by Julia Donaldson and Carol Ann Duffy (Macmillan). Lydia was the official World Book Day illustrator in 2005. Since being published in April 2004, Aaaarrgghh, Spider! has had enormous success, going into eight co-editions. Lydia lives in Sheffield with her illustrator husband Frazer and her two daughters.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A bright-orange tabby feels that dogs have all the fun and yearns to be one (especially, it seems, a small black terrier). A wide-eyed, red-haired girl reminds her pet that dogs have to do all sorts of silly stunts such as roll over and fetch sticks, while cats do wonderful things like nap and climb trees. A simple message of self-acceptance is subtly presented in the short, rhymed narrative. Early readers will be able to manage most of the easy text, and will also be challenged by some new words. Monks brings humor and character to the animals in her stylish paint-and-collage illustrations. The pictures utilize lively and saturated colors, with vibrant backgrounds of green, pink, yellow, and lilac. Some of the illustrations are full of details, while others feature large, double-page close-ups of the characters. The endpapers are decorated with different dog breeds in the front and a variety of cats in the back. A pedigree choice for animal lovers and for storytime sharing.
