    1. A fun collection of: poems, folk tales and Aesop fables all featuring the cat.Hala Witter's color illustrations are funny and complement the text.

    2. This was a really great collection of folktales all about cats (and I'm a huge cat fan)! These stories came from all around the world. It was interesting getting to read folktales that I had never heard of before and getting to see where they came from. This book teaches a lot of great life lessons and I think it would be beneficial for everyone to read. There was one page titled "What People Say about Cats" and it had where the quotes originated from. This page was my favorite because I thought [...]

    3. The Mouse and the Cat - India (cat gets trapped by a hunter, mouse helps him get out of the trap but cleverly so the cat does not catch mouse)Nursery Rhymes - Three Little KittensThe Cat and the Fox - Aesop (Moral: One good trick is better than a dozen bad ones.) Cat comes out on topRambe and Ambe - Tibet (row of mice parade in front of cat who snacks on the last one but the two title characters outsmart cat in the end)What People Say About Cats ("Curiosity killed the cat" - EnglandWhy Tiger is [...]

    4. Know any cat lovers? Direct them to this book, filled with short stories, sayings and poems about cats! Yolen has stories from Scotland, Tibet, Oman, Burma and the Congo, all celebrating and explaining cats. You receive a little education from some stories, entertainment from others. The illustrations are cute, rather anime-like in spots, and they grace every page--some are spot illustrations, others are full page.

    5. Cute tales, but not as long or engaging as her books for strong girls and strong boys. Logan liked the stories "Cat and Rat" about how cat and rat used to live together in harmony and how that changed; and "Why do Cats Always Land on their Feet," a Chippewa tale. He was bored by the nursery rhymes, which are old news to him and by most of the sayings.

    6. Absolutely beautiful illustrations and a great deal of variety included: nursery rhymes, fables (Aesop), fairy tales, folk tales, and quotes from all over the world about cats.

    7. A fascinating collection of cat stories and nursery rhymes. Each story is short, so it's easy to read two or three at any time. We love cats, and we really enjoyed these stories.

    8. Yolen’s collection mixes familiar nursery rhymes and Aesop fables with lesser known stories from India, Burma, Oman, and Thailand. Within its pages, you and your child will discover why tiger is angry at cat, why cat always lands on her feet, why having one very good trick is better than having dozens of poor ones, and most importantly, why cats and mice don’t always get along.The language is accessible, the stories short, engaging, not too scary, and fun to read aloud. Every page includes a [...]
