There Are Cats in This Book

by Viviane Schwarz

When did you last play with cats … inside a book?! The cats in this book want to have fun, and by turning the pages and flipping the flaps you can play their favourite games with them! Tiny, Moonpie and André love wool to tangle with, cardboard boxes to hide in, pillow fights … and fish! But where there are fish, there is also water – lots of it. So who’s going to rescue the cats from the giant floodwave? You are, of course!

“Cleverly, the resolution to one page is usually found on the next, and there is constant encouragement to turn over to discover it. Combining energetic, minimal drawings, with the cats directly addressing their readers via speech bubbles, Schwarz tells us not only about cats and their habits but also about the compulsive and interactive nature of enjoying books.” - Booktrust

“Witty, original and charming, with lively and economical illustration . . . This book is extremely successful with toddlers, who will not only enjoy the jokes and connection with the cats but also learn to understand and delight in the way books work.” - The Sunday Times
