    1 thought on “Anatole and the Cat”

    1. Is there a better looking French mouse than Anatole, in his A-line coat? Are there any lovelier mouse children than Paul and Paulette, George and Georgette, Claude and Claudette? Any stranger ingredient to add to cheese than cucumber seeds? Every other page has red, white and blue illustrations.

    2. Caldecott Honor story book. Cute and definitely a real story and considering its age, better than expected in both the art and the writing. And yet a cheese tasting mouse in Paris really don't do much for me. It's not something I'd want to read over and over again. But in the right household encountering this at the exact right time, I can imagine this being a favorite. 3.5 of 5.

    3. Anatole is a most honorable mouse. He must provide for his beloved family, but he is determined to find a way to earn his supper. So he heads for the tasting room at the Duvall Cheese Factory. On each cheese, he leaves a small note. When workers at the Duvall factory find his notes in the morning, they are perplexed, but they realize that this mysterious Anatole has an exceptional palate and take his advice. Soon Duvall is making the best cheese in all of Paris! Any grade level is fine for this [...]

    4. Even though this book is distinctly pro-mouse, it is rather charming. It features cheese-taster Anatole and Gaston, small rodents, and Charlemagne, a handsome black-and-white cat (black with a white blaze face and white paws, in case you're curious about your black-and-white cats). The mice are cheese-tasters, and the cat is making their lives difficult; they lure the cat into a trap with Camembert, get him high on catnip, and bell him. Those devious little bastards! All things considered, you c [...]

    5. This was published in the 50s, and it's really interesting to see how the styles of picture books have changed. A La Dr suess or The Story of Ferdinand, there are WAY more words per page, and smaller pictures. But like those books, this is also a delightful story that I think is still totally readable. It would be excellent to read aloud.

    6. Anatole is back, and his job is jeopardized by the addition of a cat to the factory. Love his work ethic, love even more how he handles the situation peacefully and respectfully. I see a lot of good values when I read these books, and wish there were a lot more of these. Great series!

    7. These two Anatole books, written in the mid-50s, are so charming! I can't help but read them in my best French accent. My cheese-loving daughter loved them, too. These are books to own and to read to young children and grandchildren many times!

    8. Caldecott Honor 1958Favorite line: Voila! If a man can build a mouse-trap, then a mouse can build a cat-trap!Thoughts: This is cute, but I prefer the original Anatole book, which won an honor in 1957. Here he out smarts a cat so that he can continue his cheese tasting work.

    9. Ah Anatole he really outsmarted the cat and saved his job in the process! Catnip, cheese sandwiches, bells, bravery, and a new cheese invented by mistake. Cute book - as they all have been!

    10. • 1958 Caldecott Honor Book •I’d never heard of this series, but this book is really cute! Anatole works at a cheese factory where he’s VP in Charge of Cheese Tasting, but there’s a cat running around and what’s he to do? Very cute, and the illustrations are great. I love the black-and-white drawings with big splashes of red and blue on every few pages. Materials used: unlistedTypeface used: unlisted

    11. Anatole and the Cat / written by Eve Titus; illustrated by Paul Galdone -- New York : Dragonfly Books, c1957, c1985. (32 pages)SUMMARY: Anatole is the happiest, most contented mouse in all of Paris. He is Vice-President in charge of Cheese Tasting at Duvall's cheese factory. He works in secret at night--the people at Duvall have no idea their mysterious taster is really a mouse! So M'sieu Duvall thinks nothing of bringing his pet cat to the factoryClever Anatole must act to protect his job, and [...]

    12. This was an ok book. It is a longer children's book. It's not super long it's just more detailed than some children's books. It was cute to see from the mouse's point of view what they are feeling about the cat. I don't know if I would read it again, but it was a fun read.

    13. I simply adore this book. The Anatole series by Titus is one great adventure after another and they all have a distinctly French flair to them that make these stories sweet yet poignant at the same time.In this particular story, Anatole who reviews the quality of cheeses for the Duval factory is proud of his contributions and hard work even if Mr. Duval has no idea he is a mouse. Anatole knows that his advice helps to produce the best cheeses in France. However, when a cat shows up at the factor [...]

    14. Great story! Anatole is a cheese taster and is terrified of cats. One night while he is hard at work the owner's cat roams around the cheese factory causing Anatole to leave some questionable comments about the cheese. To solve his cat problem he cleverly attaches a bell to the cat by way of a sash for a collar so that Anatole will hear the bell when the cat is near and be able to escape. Everyone likes this solution and Anatole even gets a cheese named after him when it is overwhelmingly favore [...]

    15. Funny story about a mouse who works as cheese taster at a shop. Unbeknownst to the workers who think Anatole is a man. One night he hears a cut and dashes out. This worries him. If the cat will be at the shop he will not be able to work anymore. Clever Anatole devises a plan to remedy his problem which sends up being extra successful. The illustrations alter between 2 pages of black and white and 2 pages of color. The color scheme reflects the French flag (The story takes place in Paris.), red, [...]

    16. PB 16I was surprisingly only slightly interested in this book. As a Caldecott Honor, I had high expectations for both the art and the story. Unfortunately, the story bored me slightly. The ending pulled me back in, but I think many children's interest would be lost by this point. I was also unimpressed by the artwork in it. This may have something to do with the fact that I am disinterested in both cats and mice stories, and this book reinforced this. The only thing I really liked about this boo [...]

    17. Positively charming! This mouse tale is a winner. You and your children are sure to love Anatole as he's clever, sweet and noble. The illustrations are splendid!Ages: 4 - 8**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also have Clean Guides (downloadable PDFs) which enable you to clean up your book before reading it! Visit my website: The Book Radar. [...]

    18. Reading Level: PrimaryGenre: Picture Book, FantasyReview: This is a very cute book about a professional cheese-tasterwho is also a mouse! The mouse must overcome obstacles that surface when a cat is on the prowl at his work. He becomes a hero mouse when he succeeds in belling the cat. He even has a cheese named after him. This was a clever book with lots of French flair. The pictures accompany the text perfectly. The author also made an effort to maintain logic and consistency throughout the tex [...]

    19. I may have enjoyed this story about Anatole even more than the first. (Despite the fact that I don't care for miced the thought of a mouse doing cheese tasting makes me cringe in real life, Anatole is quite likable in these stories.). Anatole's job is in danger because now there is a cat at the cheese factory. Anatole must bell the cat in order to maintain his job.I enjoy the illustrations of Paris, Anatole and his family and loved reading his confused suggestions for the cheeses. Quite enjoyabl [...]

    20. Anatole, the mouse who works for a cheese factory without ever revealing his identity as a mouse, is such an endearing character. In this adventure, the owner of the cheese factory has a cat, who terrifies Anatole and makes it basically impossible for him to do his job. Anatole, ever crafty, finds a clever way to solve the problem, even though he comes close to losing his job. I enjoyed the story, and I'll try to keep it in mind the next time I want to do a French story time!

    21. Well, I was inclined to love it because of the other Anatole book I remember. This one deals with the old question of who will bell the cat. It'd make a fun pairing with Cynthia Von Buhler's take on the same story, But Who Will Bell the Cats?. Recommended to fans of Ratouille.Library copy.

    22. This book was just nearly as good as the first. I enjoyed seeing how the characters react and I thought the story was a lovely little tale. This book was simple without being dumbed-down or patronizing, something I find hard to tolerate in children's books. I'd definitely recommend this book.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2008

    23. My niece and I liked this story. I'm not sure what made it so endearing to us, but at the end of the book we were both grinning like a couple of fools. The illustrations were great, and the story was uplifting, I guess is the word I want. Anatole is a brave little mouse, and we just enjoyed how he didn't let something as brutish as a cat interfere with his life.

    24. Charming. This Caldecott Honor book, published in the '50s, captivated my kids even with its comparatively lengthy text for a picture book and its "Frenchisms." Anatole has just about the best job in the world: professional cheese taster in a world-renowned cheese factory. The only drawback - for my oldest - was that he wanted something "more pro-cat." This book is definitely pro-mouse.

    25. Some titles in this series are hard to find but to this day, I will sit down in the kids section with my mom and we will search for Anatole books. Most have been found at library sales. These books are ones I have to pull out several times a year to read again. These are some of the best picture books out there. If you happen to see one, buy it. Trust me. You will love it.

    26. Caldecott Honor 1958. Anatole's job at the cheese factory is in trouble when the factory owner's cat stays in the factory at night. Anatole manages to bell the cat and creates a new cheese that gets nasmed after him

    27. Ha! Titus has constructed a wonderful story of this memorable cheese-specialist mouse in Paris. Galdone's paintings are equally memorable, wrapping it together in an amusing story for all ages of readers.
