From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1–In a continuation of the story begun in Love That Puppy! (Holt, 2009), Peter decides to be a cat. The child takes to wearing a cat suit and sleeping in a basket. Over time he masters the art of sharpening his claws on the furniture, climbing the curtains, and even shedding. Then, surprising his parents one day, Peter decides to be a boy again, at least for a while. Although the basic plot is told with succinct text, the real story unfolds through Jarka's illustrations, which are reminiscent of children's animated TV shows or comic books. The artwork has conventions like multiple boxes on a page, conversation bubbles, and colored backgrounds that suggest particular emotions. Jarka draws each character and setting with only a few well-placed lines filled in with bright solid colors. Peter's quirky confidence contrasts hilariously with his parents' bewilderment, especially when they find the kitty litter under the sink. Fans of Peter's first adventure will enjoy this one and look for more to follow.Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT
