Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Along with Let’s Say Hi to Friends Who Fly (2010), this upbeat title introduces young children to a new cast of animal pals. In large, bold type well-suited for brand-new readers, a narrator asks the title’s question as winsome Cat the Cat, in a sporty purple dress, says hello to her friends, whose greetings, printed in speech balloons, give a little glimpse into each new character’s personality. Mouse the Mouse is straightforward (“Hello there!”), Duck the Duck is a bit formal (“A pleasure, as always!”), and Fish the Fish is surfer-cool (“Hey, dude!”). Then Cat the Cat runs into a many-armed alien, who is busily building a tower of blocks, and the text’s easy, back-and-forth rhythm screeches to a halt: “Cat the Cat, who is THAT?” asks the narrator. “I have no idea,” is Cat’s wary answer, until she recognizes the adorable stranger as “a NEW friend!” Once again, Willems avoids heavy messages and walks right into kids’ daily lives with this exuberant, clean-lined, animation-ready title that’s sure to widen his already vast fan base. Preschool-Grade 1. --Gillian Engberg

Cat the Cat is out on a walk. As she walks she meets her friends and introduces them to the reader. Towards the end of the book she runs into something that she has never seem before, a monster! She takes a chance and befriends the monster! She and her friends gain a new play mate though her action! This book is great for kids that are learning to read. It's very repetitive. It can also be used to teach kids about friendship. It could also be used to cover the character trait of tolerance, just because someone looks different from you that doesn't mean that you can't be their friend.

I bought this for my two year old daughter's birthday. She loves the Mo Willems books and illustrations and this one is a hit. Cat the cat meets up with several friends (including Duck the duck, Fish the fish, Mouse the mouse...well, you get the picture). At the end up the book, Cat meets up with someone she doesn't recognize (an absolutely adorable monster) but sees this strange creature as a potential NEW friend. Cute lesson. Simple, easy book with brightly colored illustrations. I'd guess this is most appropriate for ages 1-4. Both my kids love it!

This book is fantastic for kids who are just learning to read! My son is in Kindergarten and hates the 100 Book Challenge books he has to choose from at school so I'm always looking for something to spark his interest, is easy and will help him to enjoy reading. This book really hit all three of those! 3 of his sight works are in the title and the repetitive pattern made it so he could read most of the book to me himself. What joy was on his face as he read this fun book and as always, finding the pigeon in one of the pages is always a highlight of Mo Willems books. I highly recommend this for early readers!

Cat the Cat jauntily approached a mouse who was bouncing a ball. "Cat the Cat, / who is that? / It's Mouse the Mouse!" The duo smiled and said hello to each other. Cat the Cat then skipped up to a duck cuddling her duckling. Very soon Cat the Cat knew that it was Duck the Duck. Making new friends and learning their names was fun. She quickly danced a little jig and approached Fish the Fish, who was wearing his blue swimming trunks as he busily blew bubbles.

Cat the Cat was enjoying her new friends ("Sure do!"), but soon she came upon a creature that was weird and strange looking. "EEP!" Her tail fluffed out and her wide eyes became wider than they ever were before. The monster had four arms coming out of its red shirt with the heart on it, four teeth, a blue tongue, and two eyes sticking out on the top of its head. "Cat the Cat, who it THAT?" Was Cat the Cat going to like this very strange critter?

This amusing story in rhyme is an excellent way for your preschooler to learn phonemic awareness in this totally delightful tale. Before your youngster learns to read there are several pre-reading skills they need to become aware of when they are read and one is the phoneme, a small sound that helps differentiate one word from another. In this book the two rhyming words are "cat" and "that," a rhyming scheme that will quickly be picked up and detected by your little one (think Dr. Seuss when you think about phonemes). The artwork is simple, charming, and very appealing. If you are looking for a fabulous series that utilizes "early-learning concepts," Cat the Cat has them down pat!

After hearing about Mo Willems for several years, I've started using my niece as an excuse to read some of his picture books. After all, Uncle Mark has to sample them first to make sure they are good enough for her, right? And I can easily see why he has gotten the praise and awards he has gotten. He's got some fun books. Sadly, I didn't feel that Cat the Cat, Who Is That? was up to his normal standards.

This 32 page picture book follows Cat the Cat around his neighborhood. As we meet a new character, the unseen narrator asks, "Cat the Cat, who is that?" Then Cat the Cat introduces us to Fish the Fish, Mouse the Mouse, or Duck the Duck and the two exchange greetings before moving on. Finally, we hit someone Cat the Cat doesn't know. This strange looking creature perplexes Cat the Cat for a moment until he figures out who this is - a new friend!

The last couple of pages were fun, and I liked them, but the rest of the book was repetitive. I was ready for something different to happen by the time we got to the final character, and I can imagine parents becoming frustrated with this book if they had to read it too many times to their kids.

Repetition is a tricky thing. Dr. Seuss could do it well, creating a long list of things that grows as the book progress while still entertaining us. That wasn't the feeling I got here. Instead, if bored me.

Now, I can see a plus side to this book. If your kid is just beginning to read, the simple words and repetition might help them master this wonderful skill. So for that reason, I can see a purpose for the book.

As with most of Mo Willems' books, the illustrations are very simple. This characters have just the most basic of outlines and that's about it.
