skippyjohn

Skippyjon Jones is the star of several wild picture books full of adventure. This adorable Siamese cat thinks he's a chihuahua. You'll love reading about all his imaginary adventures in 'old Mexico' and other exotic locations.


the night world
The Night World, by Mordicai Gerstein, is a new book featuring a cat named Sylvie. Sylvie invites her boy outside in the strange world of night so they can see something amazing. You'll love the pictures in this one and marvel at how the darkness of night is portrayed by this talented artist.
hello kitty  If you love Hello Kitty the library has plenty of books for you to enjoy. Hello Kitty and her friends have mysteries to solve, parties to throw, and places to visit.
pete the cat buttons
Really, everything about Pete the Cat is groovy, not just his buttons. Some of Pete's adventures, created by James Dean, work great for read-alouds where everyone joins in at the repeating parts. Other Pete the Cat stories are written just for new readers to practice their skills, and laugh some too!
hero cat
Hero Cat, by Eileen Spinelli, is such a sweet story about a mama cat who saves her kittens. Kids love this book because the mama cat is so brave and smart. I have known adults who cried at the happy ending.
These are just a few picture books for cat lovers, there are lots of chapter books and non-fiction books too.
What's your favorite cat book?
