Anton and Cecil are brother cats living in a harbor by the sea. Anton is a quiet cat who likes to listen to the sailors sing. Cecil is an adventurous cat who likes to go out on the day trips with the sailors. One day Anton is impressed into service on one of the ships and Cecil jumps on another ship to try and find him. They both have a lot of adventures on the high seas featuring rats and pirates and marooning. This is a fun romp on the high seas. I think kids will really like this tale, especially if they like animal adventure stories. I liked the distinct personalities of the two cats. I also enjoyed the slightly paranormal bit about the cat eye in the sky and the whale.

I love cats and can’t imagine my life without my kitty. Chi’s Sweet Home shows what happens when a kitten appears in your life. It accurately portrays how a kitten behaves and how its humans’s lives change because of having a cat. I loved it! I think the drawings are wonderful and truly tell the story. I love that the book is told from the point of view of the cat, who is just precious. I think this is a wonderful graphic book for kids and I can see why the series is popular.

Do you like cats? I mean all type of cats? This is the cutest book in the World displaying cats born in zoos around the World. There are tons of pictures of cats with all the biographical information and general details about the cat.
This book is a compliation of 2 comic and joke collections: My Cat is Not Fat, He’s just Big Boned and Everything Here is Mine. Not as funny as I’d hoped. There were a few pages I laughed out loud on and shared with my husband since he has the joy of sharing our home with 3 indoor cats too. But a lot of it seemed to repeat the same joke in a slightly different way.
Loved the little cat puppets. I suspect my short-haired cats fur would be difficult to work with. Its interesting to note that most of the projects used felt as a background for felting a picture on top of.
