Christmas is just around the corner and these frisky cats and kittens are busy getting things ready for the holiday celebration. They're drawing up lists of things that must get done. They're making presents with colored paper and glue and wrapping them up with bows and shiny ribbon. They're stringing popcorn up around the tree, rolling out cookie dough and hanging lights in the windows. And the kittens watch as the socks are hung over the chimney. They sing Christmas carols and play in the snow. And everyone waits and wonders "when will Santa Cat come?" You don't have to be a cat-lover to enjoy Jean Marzollo's delightful and easy-to-read holiday book. Young readers and listeners will enjoy the spirit and industry of this busy group of cats. Hans Wilhelm's watercolor illustrations burst with activity and color just right for the season. In simple words and pictures, the book captures all of Christmas' warmth and magic.
