Why do cats sleep so much? Maybe they are bored. Maybe they cannot think of anything else to do. What if you had to sit inside all day? You might get bored too. You can do a nice thing for your cat - you can read these stories out loud. They are funny stories about things cats think about and things cats like to do, and they have lots of funny pictures. Invite your cat to come hear a story - but ask nicely! Cats hate being told what to do. Sara Swan Miller and True Kelley, author and artist of the highly popular Three Stories You Can Read to Your Dog, have joined forces to prove again that they know what will delight young readers and their pets.

About the Author:

True Kelley has illustrated many books for children, including Stay! Keeper's Story by Lois Lowry. She lives with children's author Steven Lindblom and their daughter, Jada, in Warner, New Hampshire.

Review:

Shy, bold, and feisty by turns, Kelley's cat is positively purrfect as it stalks and capers its way through three episodes that depict a feline's winning ways. Pictures catch a range of emotions--from a sly stare when Kitty sees a tempting bug to a self-satisfied gleam after it has spent a wonderful day doing naughty things. Miller's stories, written using the pronominal you ("One day you [the cat] woke up early"), are funny as well as easy to read, making them great for new chapter-book readers, especially ones who have cats to cozy up with.
Booklist, ALA

"These stories are action-packed little missives filled with incredible plot twists and dripping with pathos. Talk about your strong feline character! Any cat worth its whiskers will enjoy hearing the stories over and over again -- especially when hearing them from its favorite young reader." American Bookseller, Pick of Lists
