Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What will Fat Cat sit on? The pig? (Oink!) The chicken? (Cluck!) How about the dog? (Grrrr.)
    
Everyone in this bumbling animal gang (understandably) hopes the victim will be someone else! Leave it to Mouse to come up with a brilliant solution that satisfies everyone, even Fat Cat himself. Filled with hilarious asides and an interactive question-answer format, this irreverent young picture book will delight toddlers who love to shout "NO!"

Review:

"Fat Cat is ready to take a seat, and all the other animals firmly believe it's not a matter of 'what' but rather 'whom' he will choose for his resting place. Solidarity quickly breaks down — 'Sit on the Pig! Sit on the Pig!' shrieks Chicken in full Furies-like mode — until Mouse gingerly broaches an alternative: 'Perhaps he could sit on the chair?' Sighs of relief all around — until the animals realize it's Fat Cat's lunchtime. Thomas, in a rollicking and highly promising debut, makes this book a laugh-out-loud pas de deux between Dick-and-Jane-get-stylish typography (which goes by the evocative names of Eatwell Chubby and Chaloops) and the supremely silly visual evocation of high anxiety. Eschewing anything that smacks of a setting (except for the comfy chair to which Fat Cat is directed) she renders her barnyard characters in super-saturated colors and thick, bold outlines. Mood swings generally have a bad name these days, but Thomas makes them a hoot. Ages 3-5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
