Have You Seen My Cat?by Eric Carle
Synopses & Reviews
A little boy's cat is missing, and he embarks on a fantastic round-the-world quest to find his lost pet. Along the way, he meets lots of interesting people and sees many beautiful members of the cat family, including lions and tigers and panthers. But over and over again he has to say "This is not my cat!" until at last he finds the cat he's looking for — who has a delightful surprise for him.
Eric Carle's simple, repetitive text and distinctive cut-paper illustrations make this modern classic a book to treasure.
With a few easy-to-read words and brilliantly colored collages, Eric Carle leads young readers on an around-the-world tour with a little boy who is looking for his cat. Through Africa, the Middle East, and into Asia, the boy searches--until he happily discovers what his cat has been doing with herself. Full color.
