The late, great animal photographer had a special way with cats and kittens. Patience and a fast camera allowed her to catch them at their moments of high nonsense as well as in poses of ponderous dignity. These big pages show off the black and white photographs to best advantage. The text provided by Crosby Bonsall is a of cat-alog. The specialness of cats is described by a black and white kitten in very simple words which caption the eye-catching pictures. Beginning readers anxious to perform, as well as the read aloud set will find pleasure in this book which conveniently opens to cross two laps.
