Up Cat by Hazel Hutchins with illustrations by Fanny

What does a cat get up to all day? Well, there's waking up, washing up, and tossing up toys. There's lapping up milk and creeping up on furniture (and scratching up furniture, too...). They love to size up different items and soak up the sun. You'd be amazed all that can be done in a day!

As a non-animal person (or rather, someone who likes animals from a distance), this book is a perfect example of why I don't feel the need to have a cat in the house. But as a book for young children, it has great repetition, fun illustrations, and lots of common words, phrases, and images. It's a perfect companion to Up Dog (who even has a cameo here) and likely to be a favourite among animal lovers, big and small.

Find it at IndieBound.
