“This is perfect for teaching little ones about the ups -- and downs -- of competition. Cheetah and two kittens are about to race, and Cheetah knows he'll win it all, because he always does. When the kittens start to make fun of his confidence, hilarity ensues, unbeknownst to Cheetah. A great lesson about humility for children ' and other readers!”

Description

It's race day, and once and for all, it's time to determine the better feline: little cats or big cheetah.

Cheetah might be bigger, taller, stronger, faster . . . but the little cats have some tricks up their sleeves, so don't count them out!

With his signature wit and bold, graphic art, Bob Shea brings us an irresistible story about the difference between brains and brawn.

— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for I’M A SHARK: “There will be no need to fear for Shark’s enduring popularity; here he proves he’s one refreshing delight.”
— Kirkus Reviews

Praise for I’M A SHARK: “The oversize but spare drawings of a boastful young shark declaring his bravery guarantee giggles.”

Praise for OH, DADDY!: “Busy parents will want to try this formula of patience plus humor.”
— Publishers Weekly

“The art’s lively energy keeps the book buzzing … Kids will enjoy having one over on Cheetah as they see what’s coming, and they’ll appreciate an ending twist in which the loudmouthed braggart does not learn a lesson and the smaller felines suggest that winning isn’t actually everything.”
