The second title in a quartet of imaginative picture books in which a boy and his beloved granddad discover the wonder of the natural world
A boy and his granddad are taking care of someone’s cat for the day. The boy does lots of reading up about what cats like, but this cat doesn’t seem to like anything! And then it runs off into the wild, leading them to a jungle adventure of their own.
Sam Usher graduated from the University of West England and his debut picture book Can You See Sassoon? was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize and the Red House Children's Book Award. He is particularly admired for his technical drawing skill and prowess with watercolor. Also a talented pianist, when he's not holding a pen and wobbling at paper you'll find him perfecting a fiendishly difficult piece of Chopin. He is also creator of the bestselling seasonal series about a boy and his grandfather.
Usher’s writing and illustrations evoke the work of the late Maurice Sendak and effortlessly leap from reality to imagination. . . whimsical.
—School Library Journal
When the narrator and Granddad catsit for the day, things get a little wild. . . the watercolor-and-ink illustrations seem to channel Quentin Blake’s style. . . Wild, yes, but a gentle read, too.
Tranquil, winsome illustrations that evoke Quentin Blake and Stephen Kellogg light up this story about getting along with our furry friends.
