“An ingenious idea, gorgeously realized.” -Shelf Awareness, starred review
“Both simple and ingenious in concept, Wenzel’s book feels like a game changer.” -The Huffington Post
The cat walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears, and paws . . . In this glorious celebration of observation, curiosity, and imagination, Brendan Wenzel shows us the many lives of one cat, and how perspective shapes what we see. When you see a cat, what do you see?
If you and your child liked Ricky the Rock That Couldn’t Roll, The Wonderful Things You Will Be, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Finding Winnie, or Radiant Child – you’ll love They All Saw A Cat.
