Why Should I Like It?

The Short Reason

Plays with perspective • Rhyming text • A Caldecott Honour book 

The Longer Reason

The cat walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears and paws . . . and the child saw A CAT, and the dog saw A CAT, and the fox saw A CAT. Yes, they all saw the cat.' In simple, rhythmic prose and ingeniously stylized pictures, Brendan Wenzel takes young readers on a walk alongside a cat. But is it really a story about the cat, or is it about the creatures who see it?

Reviews

'A stunning example of the art of weaving poetry and illustrations into an inextricable whole; gracefully pulling the reader into a world where an ordinary insight becomes something beautiful, delightful and profound.-Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of the New York Times Bestsellers Duck! Rabbit!, Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and I Wish You More.


'Along with inviting more reflective viewers to ruminate about perception and subjectivity, the cat's perambulations offer elemental visual delights.-
