This charming version of an ancient, simple poem in which an Irish monk compares his ninth century life of study to the pursuits of his cat has memorable watercolor and ink illustrations, including a view of the manuscript he studies.
Bold multimedia illustrations and rhythmic repetitive text capture the separate, unique world view of each of the cat observers: a child, assorted creatures and the cat itself in a mirrored lake. Sure to produce giggles and discussion.
A charming story of an unlikely friendship between Diva, a small and settled dog, and Flea, a wandering alley cat. Each learns to venture from their comfort zone to experience and share their worlds. DiTerlizzi’s elegant illustrations beautifully capture the look and feel of Paris.
Collage, muted acrylics, and oil paints create patterns reflecting the Eastern and Western worlds of an adopted Korean child. Bonding with “goyangi,” the cat in her new house, she weeps when it goes missing. Its return helps her accept that both she and Goyangi are home.
