PreS-Gr 2—Wide-eyed and curious, Cat is thrilled when Girl brings home a colorful and round new friend, Yarn. What fun they have together, playing in the snow, rolling around on the floor, and snuggling with a good book. One day, however, Girl wants to play with Yarn, so he isn't available to play with Cat for a while. When he returns, a big change has occurred, and Cat isn't so excited about it. In the end, Cat realizes that although things may change, friends will always be friends. With one or two sentences per page and a large font, this title will be a favorite for children beginning to read on their own, yet the vocabulary is not watered down or simplistic. The illustrations, drawn with charcoal and crayon and digitally colored, are large with clean lines. Children who cannot yet read on their own could pick up the book and easily understand it just by looking at the pictures. VERDICT A short, sweet selection packed with warm, fuzzy feelings, perfect for storytime or one-on-one sharing.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE

"Grant revels in Cat’s tendency toward crotchetiness (some of his grimaces could give Grumpy Cat a run for her money), and the book is equally rewarding whether readers take what Cat learns to heart or just giggle over the ups and downs of this slightly knotty friendship."--Publishers Weekly
"The simplicity of the story is matched by graphically crisp illustration that captures cats’ well-known fascination with bright balls of yarn, as well as the comfort that everyday objects bring, a message little listeners will instinctively understand . . . Will bring smiles along with the message that, though friends might change, they can still remain close to you if you give them a chance."--Booklist
"While this is an easy pick for a cat or crafting storytime, the word repetition and short, simple sentences also puts this within the reach of beginning readers. For all audiences, the final scene in which poor Cat has now acquired two new Yarn friends will incite a riot of giggles."--BCCB

This is a cozy little tale perfect for the littlest readers. They will giggle with delight at cat's silly antics and misunderstandings about his new friend. The gentle, muted pallet contrasts well against the colorful new ball of Yarn, making it pop with importance. The story isn't long, really spot-on for holding the attention of tiny, squirmy kiddos on your lap. If you like cats, knitting or stories that make you smile, this is the book for you and your children.
