It’s Saturday night on Easy Street, and this jazzy counting book reveals that the city’s hot spots are its rooftops, fire escapes, and alleyways, where pairs of cool kitties dance the night away. As music rises into the night air, 2 cats samba in white, while nearby 4 more felines boogie in saddle shoes and poodle skirts, and still 6 more tango in capes on fire escapes. Their numbers increase, until finally, when 20 hep cats conga on clotheslines, the neighbors revolt. Stutson’s syncopated rhymes sport fun flourishes of dance and fashion vocabulary (“Twelve town tabbies do the twist, / swinging their hips in dotted Swiss”) and a catchy refrain, but it’s Klassen’s atmospheric, retro illustrations that take the lead. The stellar digitally rendered illustrations in a muted gray and brown palette may resonate more with urban sophisticates than children learning their numbers, but the detailed cityscapes, hidden numbers, and appealing big-city cats will give little ones plenty to explore. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kristen McKulski
“Klassen’s eye-catching digitally rendered urban streetscapes resemble the sets of classic musical theater…The subtle charms of this lighter-than-air confection should delight young connoisseurs of dance and style. —School Library Journal

"a comely counting book."—Kirkus
"...Klassen’s retro-looking illustrations of a posse of cool cats, in pale pink tuxedos and poodle skirts, are fun to look at. Lights dimly glow in the background from elegant French casements and alley tenements alike, as though the black, white and gray cats had the free run of the city."--New York Times, August 15th 2010
