Excerpt - Cats, Cats, Cats!

While Mrs. Brown was tucked in tight
The cats would party every night:

They'd chase their tails, they'd cut a rug
They'd foxtrot and they'd jitterbug

They'd feast on seven-layer cakes
And drink one-hundred chocolate shakes...

Reviews - Cats, Cats, Cats!

"Kids and catlovers alike will be tickled by Lesléa Newman's comical depiction of the cats disporting themselves in a very human manner: knitting, writing, cooking, and even dancing. The upbeat tempos of the rhymes are infectious, and even those usually uninspired by felines will be hard-pressed to resist Newman's convivial bunch. A whimsical tale perfect for cat fanciers young and old." --Kirkus Reviews
"In this exuberant picture book, Newman and Oller offer an inspired explanation of why cats sleep all day... All day long the fetching felines snooze and snore, but at night the fun begins, as they cut loose in a frisky frolic... They bake, they knit, they dance and play ball, and oh, what a mess they make by morning. This is a real find for cat fanciers and their furry companions who will no doubt give it an enthusiastic 'two paws up.' " --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
