Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

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.
Publishers Weekly

An adventure in which the preternatural curiostiy of cats is celebrated with sly wit in both words and pictures.
School Library Journal

Children will enjoy this manic romp by an endearing scamp, and also appreciate that the cat gets a hug despite the calamity he has caused.

They laugh every time cat makes a mess in the book, particularly with the garbage & paint.

As a former early childhood literacy coordinator (and someone who does not even LIKE cats), I encourage you to add this book to your children's book shelves!
Kathryn A Hickman
The story and illustrations reminded my husband and I of aspects of each of our three cats - they are truly endearing, recognizable, and perfectly rendered.

My granddaughter's Kindergarten class roared with laughter when my daughter read this book aloud to them. A Cat jumps in through a window and manages to mess up every corner of the house..."naughty" behavior the kids would like to enjoy themselves! Tess Weaver's writing incorporates fresh images and wonderful vocabulary as well..the cat "sidled across a circle of pie dough," tumbled through gooey eggshells and syrupy waffles," "pounced on a powder puff." Repetition of words like "OOPS" and "CAT OUT" also draws little readers to get involved in the story, and pick up sight words at the same time. McCully's illustrations are both colorful and delightful. I loved Weaver's award-winning Opera Cat...this one is just as terrific. As a former early childhood literacy coordinator (and someone who does not even LIKE cats), I encourage you to add this book to your children's book shelves!

Read this story to my children inserting cat sound effects LOL and it really hyped up the telling of this tale of a cat just being a cat---clamboring into trash cans, closets, boxes, knocking into purfume bottles on your dressertop, etc...going all the places a housecat goes and messing up all the things a housecat messes up (especially when startled by the owner shooing it away!!!!). In the end the cat redeems himself by leaving his owner a "mess" of a message :) that warms the heart of any cat lover.

Love this book!! As a cat lover I think the author, Tess Weaver, really captured the spirit of a cat (more like a kitten to me) with way to much energy. The book made me go, awwww, laugh out loud and think to myself, "Yep, that's my cat." or "I know that feeling."

Basicaly a cat, named Cat, jumps into an open window and gets into all sorts of trouble in the kitchen. As the book states: "It was summer, and someone left the window open. Cat jumped in. He sidled across a circle of pie dough, licked a puddle of cream, and sniffed something fishy.....somewhere in the kitchen. WHAT was it? WHERE was it? Cat snooped around. THERE! (cat sees a wastebasket (Cat dove in. Down, down, down he tumbled through gooey eggshells and syrupy waffles. Up, up, up he climbed over apple cores and banana peels." (picture shows waste basket tipped over with contents spilled out all over the kitchen floor.

The owner, a woman, comes and shoes him away. Where he finds a closet and jumps on a shelf and "Down fell the shelf. Down fell Cat." The owner comes and shoes him away. So the cat goes upstairs and finds paint. I won't tell you what happens but it's so funny. At one point Cat sees another cat and hisses and claws a it but it's not really another cat, it's his own reflection in a mirror.

If you are a cat lover, you are sure to love this book.
