The Best Cat
Publication Date: March 23, 2010
The family pet is so much more than that in this warm and funny book for little animal lovers with imaginative minds.
When Bootsy plays with a ball of yarn, Jeff sees a clown — the best clown in the world! And when Bootsy dances, Jeff sees a ballerina — the best ballerina in the world! Jeff’s big sister, Ginny, disagrees. "Bootsy is just a regular cat," she insists. But Ginny and Jeff can agree on one thing: Bootsy is the best cat in the world! Valeri Gorbachev’s charming illustrations capture the central role that a beloved pet plays in the life of a child.
Valeri Gorbachev has illustrated numerous books for children, including ALL FOR PIE, PIE FOR ALL by David Martin and SQUIRREL'S WORLD by Lisa Moser. He is also the author-illustrator of many children’s books, including THE MISSING CHICK. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
