Mark Gibbel lives in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to working, raising a family, and caring for a cat, he is active in neighborhood community organizations. This is Mr. Gibbel's first book for young readers.
Sarah Massini lives in Sussex, England, with her husband, son, and her son's two rabbits (no cats-but sometimes the neighbor's cat drops by for a visit). Ms. Massini has worked as a designer on many books for children, but this is the first that she has illustrated.
PreS. Anyone who has had a kitten will recognize this family's happy predicament. Harry the golden kitty arrives in the house, and the kids have plenty of questions. Will he know where to eat? To drink? To poop? Dad makes sure Harry is properly introduced to the amenities, but when it comes to Harry knowing where to sleep, the kitten has his own ideas. Unhappy with his bed downstairs, Harry crawls in with first one child, then another. The children then head for their parents' bed, forcing Dad to curl up in the bunk bed--just where Harry decides to snooze. Using a mix of bright, delightful full-page pictures, illustrations cut in half horizontally, or divided into boxes, this breezy tale has immediate appeal. It may not be a story a child wants to hear more than once, but a first-time telling will be a pleasure for little animal lovers. Ilene Cooper
