Description

When someone leaves the kitchen window open, Cat jumps in! So begins the tale of an outdoor cat who finds his way into a tidy house, wreaking havoc at every turn. That is, until he finds his way in once more--this time into someone's heart. Beautiful, bright watercolors from Caldecott-winning illustrator Emily Arnold McCully nearly spring off the page, buoyed by a playful text that highlights simple prepositions. Preschoolers will delight in Cat's unintended disasters and mess, and the heartwarming story, the product of a pairing of exceptional author and illustrator talents, will charm cat people of any age.

Each incident is backlit with white space as McCully's signature watercolors vigorously create the cat chaos.
Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Weaver's succinct text rings with onomatopoeia and provides a bit of suspense as readers try to infer the identity of 'someone' and to guess what Cat will do next.
