The artwork is great, and the captions include lots of little puns and jokes that parents will appreciate.

Your kids probably won't need this tip--but as a dumb adult, I had trouble figuring out what to do with the pull tabs on each page. I kept thinking I was supposed to pull to the right and slide something out. But you need to pull UP and to the side at the same time, to create a 3D effect. The top of the page raises up like part of a box.

This book is fabulous. I bought one for each of my grandchildren and myself. We live very far apart, but with each having their own book, I can read it to them over the phone and they can follow along on their end. The oldest is 5. The book's creators and illustrator had an imagination that would not quit. What a concept, a cat that is home alone all day decides to enter pictures on the wall and then with wit and rhyme describe his adventures. The pull out feature on the illustrations give you 3D vision of his journeys. This book may surpass Dr.Seuss, if you can imagine that.

Frank Radice was my boss on the East Coast and had sent me a poster Charles Fazzino had illustrated for the Daytime Emmy's in Los Angeles. I loved his artwork and Frank told me to check out the book which I then promptly bought. I really loved the story, especially since I personally know Sami Katz and the pop-up illustrations are amazing. I just recently gave the book as a gift to the daughter of good friends for her birthday.

By Herbert Ruskin on February 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This pop=up book, beautifully illustrted by Carles Fazzino, is very charming. Using works of art, it tells the stry of a cat named Sam Katz who travels through the house in which he lives. The illustrations, by the well known artist Charles Fazzino, really make this book the charmer that it is. I certainly woild recommend the book to any one who loves cats, art and clean fun.
