PreS-Gr 3–Tiny, Moonpie, and André are back in this follow-up to There Are Cats in This Book (Candlewick, 2008). No longer content to stay within the confines of their book, the three felines conspire to escape the pages and see the world. They eventually succeed, with readers' help, and return with a pleasant surprise (for cat lovers, at least). Schwarz incorporates many of the same elements that made the first book so much fun: page manipulation, bold colors, and the ongoing dialogue between the cats and readers. This book teaches children about the connection that develops when a story is completely engaging. They are afforded every opportunity to respond and take an active part in the cats' adventure. The brush and ink cartoons are a hoot, and the dialogue balloons are easy to read. Metafiction has never been more cuddly or as much fun.Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
