In rhyming text, a girl enthusiastically highlights the different types of cats she sees in her city. "Big cats, little cats. Thin cats, fat cats"--she loves them all! Ultimately, the young cat fancier receives her own kitten. Staake's cartoony mixed-media illustrations in bold geometric shapes and bright colors, new to this edition, suit the comical and occasionally quirky text. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PreS-Kâ Cat lovers unite! Those who adore feline friends will rejoice in this whimsical title for young children. There is not much in way of a plot, as the purpose is more for decoding words and objects (think One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss), but who cares! Staake has a deft touch for creating expressive and animated cats, favorites including the "scaredy cats," "prancing cats," and "snuggling cats."
