Mattoo, Let's Play! by Irene Luxbacher

Luxbacher, Irene Mattoo, Let's Play! Kids Can Press, 2010. 32 pg. PICTURE BOOK. $16.95. Boisterous Ruby loves to play with her cat, but her cat is just so shy...or at least that is what she thinks, but the pictures tell a different story! It looks like Ruby just might play a little too rough with her shy cat. But that all changes when one day Ruby and her friend Clemente go on a safari in Ruby's bedroom. Who is that mysterious, fierce, spotted creature in the jungle?! I absolutely love the illustrations in this book. The majority of pages are black and white with a few color accents. The contrast of light and dark is amazing and it just makes the color really pop! EL-ADVISABLE. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
