Sneakers, the Seaside Cat

Sneakers, the Seaside Cat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sneakers saw something.
It was yellow and pink on the outside....
Then he crept up to it and
peeked in.

On Sneakers' first trip to the seaside, his curious paws find surprises in the sand. There's a mischievous crab, playful shrimp, and a shell that echoes the roar of the ocean.

The lyrical prose of Margaret Wise Brown, beloved author of Goodnight Moon, and the masterful miniaturist paintings of Anne Mortimer perfectly capture the spirit and essence of one lone feline and the sea, too. Adapted from stories in the 1955 publication of Sneakers Seven Stories About a Cat, this picture book will find a happy home in the hearts of those who love cats and the seaside.
