A playful cat chews the laces of a sneaker. Turn the page, and suddenly the sneaker has become a roller coaster--and the cat is enjoying the ride! Magic unfolds with the turn of each die-cut page in this inventive and humorous book. Children will delight in discovering the nuances of each transformation and in the clever antics of a very crafty cat. “In all, an illustrator’s tour de force, and a great stimulus to a child’s visual imagination.”--Kirkus Reviews

Keith Baker has written and illustrated many well-loved picture books and early chapter books, including several about the charming and lovable Mr. and Mrs. Green. Two of his best-known picture books, Hide and Snake and Who Is the Beast?, are about animals. He lives in Seattle, Washington.From Kirkus Reviews:
Fans of Baker's Hide and Snake (1991) will be happy to encounter this new book of catchy verse and tricky pictures in an intense purple, green, blue, and gold palette, used to depict cats, shoes, hats, clocks, patterned fabrics, and extravagant textures of all kinds. In this tall, narrow book, every other page is half- width; turning it transforms the picture into a completely different scene, showing a dapper black-and-white cat doing something quite improbable. The fun is in seeing how Baker transforms lines or shapes in one picture into something totally different in the next: a spiderweb to a ship's rigging, a sweeping green feather to a curling ocean wave, a loosely tangled plate of spaghetti to skate tracings on a frozen pond, a pair of green curtains to a plunging waterfall. Often an object in the first picture will prefigure something in the second, or the second will contain an echo of the first. In all, an illustrator's tour de force, and a great stimulus to a child's visual imagination. (Picture book. 5-8) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
