Open the covers of this extraordinarily inventive, interactive book to find that the cats inside are ready to play — in very surprising ways.
There they are, purring under a blanket. But not for long! Three sprightly cats named Tiny, Moonpie, and Andre are eager to involve you in their games, whether it's tossing a ball of yarn (oof!), lifting flaps to find them in boxes (comfy), or getting caught in a pillow fight (biff!). As their antics get wilder still, they'll need a kind soul to blow on the page to dry them off! With an irresistible story that directly engages the reader, this book's clever design and bright, gestural illustrations make for cat-tastic lift-the-flap fun.

Viviane Schwarz is the author-illustrator of SHARK and LOBSTER'S UNDERSEA ADVENTURE and the highly acclaimed picture book THE ADVENTURES OF A NOSE.
Of THERE ARE CATS she says, "I thought, wouldn't it be nice if you could give someone a book that's not just about cats, but actually full of cats? This book is a place for three friendly cats to live, and it contains everything they need to be happy — except someone to play with."
She grew up in Germany but now lives in London.
PreSchool-Grade 1—Through a series of instructive lift-the-flap pages, children meet Tiny, Andre, and Moonpie, three colorful and friendly moggies that want to play with yarn, and boxes, and readers. Each turn of the page is celebrated by the cats as it reveals not only what lies ahead, but even the option of going back a page when the appeal of yarn is almost too much to relinquish. The book finishes with an invitation to come back another day, which is no doubt the wish of any cat, or book—to be revisited and adored again and again. The artwork, like the story, is simple yet effective—bold, primary colors are set against white space with elements of collage thrown in to provide texture and a sense of reality. This book joins Mélanie Watt's Chester (Kids Can) and Peter Catalonatto's Ivan the Terrier (S & S, both 2007) as picture books that are not so much reading experiences as explorations of how a book is a creative, interactive tool. Buy in duplicate, because these kitties will get a lot of attention.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
