The Boy Who Drew Cats (Karadi Tales)

by

The Boy Who Drew Cats (Karadi Tales) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Akiro draws only cats . . . cats, cats, and more cats! This artistic tendency leads him to an adventure one dayand#151;an adventure that will change his life. Go on a journey in this folktale retold by Anushka Ravishankar with intricate illustrations by Christine Kastl in watercolors and ink on rice paper.

Review:

"A humorous narrative voice and careful ink-and-watercolor illustrations make this an engaging retelling of a classic Japanese legend. After being shuttled off to a temple by his parents, Akiro tries to train as a priest, but he doesn't last long. After the priest tells him he lacks the temperament for that role, 'Akiro did not know what a temperament was, but he realized he was being told to leave.' The climactic battle in which the cats Akiro obsessively draws save him from a goblin rat is suspenseful and just a tad gruesome. An enjoyable reminder that seemingly pointless talents and preoccupations can bear unexpected fruit. Ages 5 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Akiro does nothing but draw cats - but even cat-drawing can lead to adventure!
