I love the simplicity of this book. There’s not a lot of text so it’s really easy for little ones to follow, but every word is used to full effect to tell the story – even the impressive array of onomatopoeias! It’s great fun to read aloud and the words complement the illustrations brilliantly.
Speaking of which, I absolutely love the illustrative style of this book. The drawings are deceptively simple, including lots of details you might overlook at first but that just adds to the cat-and-mouse (or cat-and-sausage) nature of the plot. And the looks on the cat’s faces are just delightful in their expressiveness!
This picture book already has a feel of a classic with its distinctive style and concise humour, I’m looking forward to many more reads with Preschooler!
