KIRKUS REVIEW

"When the lights go down/On the city street,/Where does the white cat go, honey?/Where does the white cat go?" On successive dark, luminous doublespreads, the same. question is asked about other, mysteriously unrelated animals: a monkey in the jungle; a camel in the desert; a dog in a junkyard; a bear; even a seagull. All are pictured beneath the same moon, and all--according to the reiterated refrain, as the accumulating group is seen traveling across the page, with a white cat taking the lead--are going home. Only in the last picture does everything make sense: these are toy animals, joining a child in bed. Simple, quiet, lovely, perfectly composed.
