Geisel-medalist Ethan Long's newest easy reader is for true beginners, offering laughs, a lovable and patient cat, and the simplest vocabulary possible.
Two rowdy siblings love playing with their oversized kitty. They wake him up from a nap so he can fly and dance around the room while being smothered with hugs. But as Big Cat endures his final humiliation--being dressed in a wig, hat, and high heels--it's apparent that despite the discomfort, Big Cat loves his family.
Long's long-suffering, big-bellied, feline is sure to charm readers. His understated text and hilarious characters with looney expressions will have readers rolling on the ground.
