Is That a Cat? by Tim Hamilton- OPTIONAL

Hamilton, Tim. Is That a Cat?, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. A lonely cat wants another cat to play with. He thinks he sees the tail of one poking up past the window but when he investigates, it’s just an elf with an umbrella. Each character that is introduced is looking for something else and thinks that they see it, but in fact, it leads us to a new character. Finally, the group of new acquaintances meets a little boy who really does need a friend and they have a pool party all together. This was a unique concept for a book, but it seemed so long and the pictures were in a really unappealing style. They looked like they could have been thrown together by anyone. However, there was a nice, supportive message at the end. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL
