Author Sara Swan Miller gives equal time to felines in this clever follow-up to Three Stories You Can Read to Your Dog (Houghton Mifflin, 1995). "Why do cats sleep so much? Maybe they get bored,"Miller writes in the introduction. Her solution: "Invite your cat to come hear a story. Ask nicely. Cats hate being told what to do."The three brief stories are "The Rainy Day," "The Yummy Bug,"and "The Good Day"and each second-person narrative will make cats feel right at home in the story and children feel right at home with the humor, which is heightened by True Kelley's whimsical color illustrations. Children who live with cats will especially appreciate the author's and the artist's keen understanding of feline behavior. (Ages 5-7)
