Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A brief observant poem by the late Farjeon (1882-1965) provides the text for this slim book. Dainty illustrations depict blissfully smiling, sacked-out cats, "Fitted in a cardboard box,/ In the cupboard/ With your frocks." Mortimer's (A Pussycat's Christmas) expertise as a painter of miniatures is evident in both the meticulous detail of her work and her attention to texture?the cats' fur looks plush and silky. Her native British taste shows up in a fondness for floral patterns, especially in soft pinks and blues, which decorate hatboxes, upholstery and clothing. Those who really dote on cats will probably say, "Aw, how cute!" at every cat sprawled out on a swing or curled up in a shoe; others may find this excursion a bit purr-ecious. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Farjeon's hymn to cat behavior ("Cats sleep/ Anywhere,/ Any table,/Any chair,") is brought to life in Jenkins' humorous, stylized watercolor cartoons. The book is a wonderful combination of clean text and purrfectly matched illustrations. An offering that's the cat's meow. --Kathleen Whalin, formerly at Public Library of Columbus and Franklin County, OH

My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with cats! She loves that the illustrations look so life-like and that the book is so tiny (about the size of a grow man's palm.) which fits easily into many of her bags and purses to take along in the car. She loved it so much we have bought other books by this illustrator

Format: Hardcover
Cats Sleep Anywhere is a simple book with large pictures. It's really one long sentence about all the places cats sleep, which a picture on each page. E.g., Cats sleep anywhere, in cupboards (page), in drawers (page), in laps (page). As such, it is a quick read.

The pictures are quite lovely and well represented by the book cover. Lots of pictures of happy sleeping cats, all varieties, looking peaceful. This is a great book for bedtime to get kids 'in the mood.'

As a note: The copy I had was British and used the word 'frocks' rather than dresses.

I should have read the description more carefully. This book is really small, maybe 4-inches x 4-inches. My daughter likes it, but I would like it more if it were larger. The illustrations are lovely.
