Description

What does a cat want in a best friend? Someone who knows just where to scratch. Someone who can read the many moods of a cat’s tail. Someone who knows when to play and when to stay away.

In fact, this cat might just have someone special in mind....

With characteristic humor and a light touch, Wendy Wahman shows readers what cats like and what they don't. A Cat Like That is perfect for every kid who meets a feline friend—from the overeager ones to the scaredy-cats!




About the Author

Wendy Wahman has won many awards for illustration, but her greatest joy is loving the two-, three-, and four-legged animals she has known. She lives in Washington State.




Praise For A Cat Like That

"A primer for the young friends of wise felines." --Chicago Tribune “With humor and a light touch, this book shows young readers what cats like and what they don’t, helping kids understand good, pet-friendly behavior.” --Cat Fancy "Reading Wendy Wahman's colorful picture book A Cat Like That awakened all my hitherto more or less hidden desires to acquire a kitten." --Nancy Pearl "Cat lovers will be instantly smitten, and even those who aren’t as immediately enthusiastic may well be won over by this slinky, strong-minded, creature.” --Kirkus Reviews "The dynamic artwork and playful prose make this an appealing book to share individually with a prospective cat owner or in a cat-themed storytime.” --School Library Journal "An attractive primer for kids who love cats—or may someday.” --Booklist
