Both my kids -I have a daughter who is seven and a son who is five- love the book. Mario Picayo's writing is both clever and insightful, of course, never failing to keep in mind his intended audience (children 4-8), yet still finding a way to humor adults who are more than likely to read the book to children. The art by Yolanda Fundora is fun and quirky; nothing dark or frightening which is more often the case in many of the new children's books such as the collaborations between Neil Gaiman and Dave Mckean.
Another wonderful aspect about A Very Smart Cat is the book being bilingual. The book is both in Spanish and English. I find this to be a great learning tool for any child. For English speaking kids, it helps open a window to another culture. Not to digress too much, but corporate book stores need to carry books with such advantages. The book helps broaden a child's mind (especially if they are like my children and only one language is spoken inside the househould)and distinguish it from the rest of the pack.
Overall, the book was an unexpected joy. But, be forewarned my fellow dog lovers- after finishing the book my daughter decided that the family must own a cat. The book was well worth the purchase and is a great gift for any child or the reader who loves books for children.
