From the dust jacket: “Climb into a cat’s dreamland! It’s raining mice, all the dogs have run away and a big bowl of kibbles and cream is waiting.”
It’s as if the author peeked inside my head to see what I dream of!!! Beautifully illustrated with gorgeous detailed imaginings of what all cats secretly hope for – lots of mice, no drooling dogs, a never-ending bowl of yummy goodness and even a cat nip tree to climb!! The rhymed text is large with simple words that dance across the page enchanting toddlers and beginning readers alike. The young kittens in your household will ask you to read this book to them again and again!
Rating 4 out of 5 paws for big bowls of cream, raining mice and scared dogs!! Also for moms who hold you when you’re scared.
