HERE COMES THE EASTER CAT is a funny, offbeat picture book. Its humor lies in the oddball conversation between the unseen narrator and the nonspeaking cat, who holds up signs to communicate and reacts with happy, sad, mad, surprised, and scared faces to the narrator's observations and questions about what he's doing and why. Spare colored pencil-and-ink illustrations against stark white backgrounds provide narrative clarity.

One of the funniest exchanges comes when Cat indicates he's tired, even after having taken seven naps that day. The terrified look on his face when the narrator informs him that the Easter Bunny gets no naps while delivering millions of eggs in one night is a hoot!
