KIRKUS REVIEW

An unnamed narrator recounts a typical day for handsome Captain, a perfectly average black-and-white cat who mostly eats, grooms, and sleeps. That is, until he rather surreally rows his boat in the moonlight to his sweetheart’s house, where Captain holds paws with his orange-and-white sweetie. When it’s almost morning, he returns down the river and contentedly purrs on the bed at home. While there is a certain charm in Floyd’s realistic watercolors and easy-to-read text, it’s hard to envision any but the most die-hard cat fans wanting to repeat their journey on the river with Captain unless it’s just to look at the pictures. (Picture book. 3-5)
