A whimsical counting book from 1 to 10 features an abundance of adorable feline antics. The cats are simply shaped—variations on ovals, with pointy ears and round black dots for eyes (unless they’re sleeping). Occasionally a paw or tail extends from their rotund bodies. The limited color scheme (a predominance of aqua, with bright punctuations of orange and gold along with neutral tones) adds to the visual pleasure as the cats engage in various actions, including but not limited to play, hide, seek, climb, teeter, totter, sleep (they’re cats, after all), and, yes, stack! In fact, every multiple of 3 (3, 6, 9) is cats in a stack (or two stacks, or three). Even the most curmudgeonly I’m-not-a-cat-person will be charmed, while young children will be delighted. (Ages 2-5)
