The book takes readers through a city neighborhood home to all sorts of characters who all happen to be feline. No two are the same in personality, ability, or appearance, but all are loved and valued for their individuality. This book’s, bright, engaging illustrations and blatant rhyming combine to create a rich sensory experience that will hold the attention of every reader. The variety and vividness of colors, mirroring that of the cats, is a visual treat, and children are likely to enjoy taking their time looking at every feline. This book’s greatest strength lies in its entertainment value—visually portraying the humorous behaviors of funny-looking, yet endearing cast of felines unbounded by a plot, seemingly in order to celebrate the diversity of the species in a lighthearted way. Any reader can find at least one cat they relate to, even dog lovers!
