Cats Cats Cats! by Stephane Lapuss’, illustrated by Philippe Larbier, colored by Paillat, Magnetic Press, c2011, 2017 (France), 2022
Format: Paperback comic/cartoon
What did you like about the book? Anyone who has lived with a cat will acknowledge all the shenanigans that cats are famous for, knocking things off shelves, wanting to go out and come back in and go back out and come back in, ignoring purchased toys to play with found objects, being able to hear the refrigerator door being opened from way far away, ripping up the toilet paper roll, demanding to sit in your lap, being impossible to get into the kitty carrier – they are all here plus tons and tons more. The personality of the cat has been captured and illustrated in comic style, full of bright colors and lots of humor. This one is for cat lovers.
Anything you did not like about the book? No
To whom would you recommend this book? Some kids might be surprised to learn that other kitties besides their own do so many of the actions illustrated in this collection. It’s pretty laugh-out-loud funny.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries
Where would you shelve it? 741.5
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? If you are a cat lover, yes.
