I thoroughly enjoyed this funny, unique story of the blue cat Hester and her love interest, Sam and their many, many kittens---all named Sam!! In a previous book, Uncle Andy's (Picture Puffin Books), Mr. Warhola mentions briefly that his famous Uncle Andy lived with his mother and owned 25 cats named Sam. From that one sentence was born this fascinating, funny, beautifully and skillfully illustrated book about Uncle Andy and his many cats. What child could resist so many cute, imaginary, artsy cats? Not me! LOL! The stampede of cats running between Uncle Andy's legs is a hoot and Uncle Andy asleep with a 'cat pile' on top of him is worth the price of the book all by itself. I highly recommend this book for children ages 2 - 99 and for all cat lovers!
The book is interesting for adults as it gives some background on Warhol and it is fun for kids because there are cats and more cats to count! Lots of colors to name and lots of objects to find. This has already become a family favorite!
Uncle Andy's Cats treats on several levels and is a charming book for adults and children!
Uncle Andy and his mother decided Hester needed a little company and decided to add Sam to the family. It was a good decision because "it was love at first sight." Round and round they went chasing each other around the house. They played together, cuddled up on a cushion together and kept Uncle Andy company when he painted things like Campbell's soup cans. Before you know it when the kids came to visit there were all kinds of kittens. To make it easy they were all called "Sam." It wasn't long before "Hester and Sam were a mommy and daddy again." Too many cats! They loved the house and Uncle Andy and Bubba loved them, but what would they do with so many Sams?
If you want a rollicking, frolicking cat story about twenty-five cats named "Sam," this one can't be beat! It was a charming little story that I thoroughly enjoyed, especially the little twist at the end. This story is based on the author's fond childhood memories of his famous uncle, Any Warhol. The story made the whole tall and skinny house come alive with pleasant memories. The artwork was vibrant and cheerful, qualities that add a lot to the story. If you'd love to have twenty-five cats, but don't have the room for them, you can nicely visit with them in this marvelous book!
