About this title
A collection of poems about cats by a variety of poets.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 6 This successful collaboration from Livingston and Hyman provides a selection of 19 cat poems by noted poets Eve Merriam, John Ciardi, Karla Kuskin, and others. Six poems were commissioned for this book; the others appear in previously published works, a few of which are out of print. Two of the poems also appear in Lee Bennett Hopkins' anthology, I Am the Cat (HBJ, 1981). Varied styles, rhymes, meters, and moods are executed in the poems about the habits and adventures of cats. Hyman's deft pencil drawings animate the mischievous antics of the felines, creatively contained within simple brown ink borders. Her drawings are as fluid in movement as a cat. Cat lovers who enjoyed following the cats throughout Hyman's Little Red Riding Hood (Holiday, 1982) will delight in their full treatment here. Libraries owning Hopkins' collection or Arnold Lobel's Whiskers & Rhymes (Greenwillow, 1985) will still want to consider this enjoyable collection. Cynthia K. Dobrez, Oak Lawn Public Library, Ill.
