So, what's it like to be a cat?
I'm very glad you asked me that.
Are cats afraid of the dark? Where do they prefer to sleep? What time do cats eat their breakfast? And what do they really think of dogs (and people!)? The award-winning team of Karla Kuskin and Betsy Lewin explore the secret inner lives of felines in this beguiling question-and-answer interview between an intrepid child and a very clever cat.

About the Author:

Cats have permitted Karla Kuskin to observe their antics for a very long time. She's found that they especially like to nap on her papers when she is trying to write about them! She has written dozens of poetry collections and picture books, including Roar and More; The Philharmonic Gets Dressed; The Animals and the Ark; and Moon, Have You Met My Mother? She has won numerous awards for her witty way with words, including the prestigious NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children and the Children's Book Council's Lifetime Achievement Award. She lives with her husband and Velma the cat on Bainbridge Island, Washington.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 3–Two award winners team up to explore playfully the essence of being a cat. The framework of an interview between a boy and a feline allows for a series of skillfully constructed calls and responses. For example, the youngster asks, Do you have a kitty bed/with your picture at the head? and his subject replies, I do not have a kitty bed/to rest my kitty tail and head./I'd rather/sleep most anywhere/that's warm and soft:/a couch,/a chair,/a sleeping loft;/I'll curl up there. Within strong black lines, the loosely composed watercolor cartoons perfectly capture the range of expressions, postures, and mischievous ways of cats. The illustrations are set against crisp white backgrounds and each page offers a diverse layout that enhances the cadence of the poem. This inextricable interplay of art and text works harmoniously to provide a delightful portrait of the capricious nature of felines. A great choice for reading aloud.–Caroline Ward, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
