Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A little boy's cat is missing and he is worried. Beautiful illustrations and a brief, easy-to-read text lead small readers on a round-the-world quest for the lost cat, and to an ending that is a wonderful surprise. Along the way, the little boy meets a wide variety of people, all trying to be helpful, and sees many beautiful members of the cat family strikingly pictured in Eric Carle's distinctive collage technique.

This popular book, first published more than a decade ago, has now been completely re-illustrated by Eric Carle and is more appealing than ever. We are proud to re-introduce it now for the delight of a new generation of readers.

Review:

"The combination of Carle's unique cut-paper collage pictures and easy to read text make it a great story for even the youngest children." Alternative Family

Synopsis:

A whole new generation of readers will delight in discovering Have You Seen My Cat?, Eric Carle's charming story of a boy searching for his cat that ends with a surprise. Carle's trademark cut-paper illustrations are bright and perfectly suited to this board book format.

A little boy looks for his cat.
This book explores different breeds of cats from Persians to Jaguars, as he searches around the world for his cat.
This book has a very simple and repetitive text, easy to read along.
Pictures are interesting enough to ad your own story as you move through the book and ask your child to point out the little details.
