KIRKUS REVIEW

A girl and her father embark on a quest in search of their missing cat. In a feline version of seek-and-find, the child explores her neighborhood in search of her beloved pet. Lilting, rhyming verses describe the myriad kitties the duo encounters on their journey. Alas, each sighting ends with the girl dolefully shaking her head: “It’s not that one.” Myers’s narrative exhibits a keen appreciation for the oftentimes comedic behaviors of cats. Reed’s finely detailed, full-color illustrations have a grainy quality to them. This feature, along with the slightly blurred lines of the drawings, creates an ideal medium through which he conveys fluid feline movements. The playfulness of the text combined with its predictability makes this a suitable candidate for read-aloud time with the preschool set. (Picture book. 3-6)
