Is It Any Good?

Much of the action is effectively played out in the pictures here; words are not necessary to explain the inevitable reaction when Willie and the cat spot each other. An eloquent series of wordless illustrations perfectly convey that still moment of awareness and, a mere split second later, the leap into action.

Liberal touches of humor keep readers rolling with laughter. Young children enjoyed searching for the curious cat, which is subtly included in the backgrounds of many of the innovative collage illustrations. Head cocked and ears aloft, Ezra Keats' little black cat is the epitome of feline curiosity.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
