Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–Posy sometimes wonders aloud, ‘Rufus, fat cat, what good are you?' The offended feline outlines his busy day, replete with numerous chores required to take care of his girl. He wakes Posy up, helps with her breakfast, guards the birdbath, exercises the chickens, and entertains the child when she comes home from school. As he says, It's all very hard work! that she couldn't possibly understand because she is a human. This simple, amusing story can be appreciated on a literal level, as a two-year-old would see it, or enjoyed by an older preschooler who will recognize the humor of Rufus's various explanations. The stylized acrylic cartoons are bright and colorful, clean and uncluttered. One jarring note is the set of human teeth that the artists give Rufus, but otherwise he's all feline and quite irresistible.–Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

I have purchased this books for all the little kids in my life - and some of the grown-ups too! The storyline is adorable and the pictures make me wish I could crawl inside the book to play with Rufus and Posey!

I have a 10-month old daughter whose face absolutely lights up when she sees the sweet, toothy-grin of Rufus. The illustrations are simply adorable and hilarious and the story captures the essence of "cat"-ness. I stumbled across this at the library, but will definitely add this to our home collection. I hope that there are more Rufus books some day, and a board book edition would be great as well.

This book is just amazing, the illustrations are wonderful for children to look at and the story is a pleasure to read. As a parent who reads books over and over again, I love finding books that my children ask for again and again that I enjoy reading again and again (not always an easy feat!). I highly recommend this book and look forward to another book from Tory and Norm Taber!
