My Wild Cat by Isabelle Simler

The talented Isabelle Simler has written a simple, informative book about a cat and cats in general. Her scratchy, handsome (digital?) ink-work give fur and fabric a textural feel.

With one sentence or partial sentence per spread, the book is a perfect read aloud for the very young. Footnotes add fascinating facts, such as a "cat can run 100 meters in only 9 seconds––faster than any human on record."

In the end we see the cat waiting patiently, then playfully pouncing on the narrator. Written with affection and insight, My Wild Cat is a delightful book for all ages.
