The question is: "Have you seen my Cat? The slide out answer is, "That's not my cat!" until the last page "That's my cat". The little boy travels around the world asking this question, to Persia, the rainforest, Africa and more. So its a good way of talking about different countries, and the boy's increasing frustration, and the fact he kept on looking and showed persistence! Also the slide-out flaps show different "Big cats" such as Puma, bobcat, panther which are also classified on the last page.

For a small, simple book, rich in possibilities and strong on interaction. I am reviewing the small board book version which is about 6" by 5".

The usual charming colourful illustrations!

Charming. I am an Eric Carle Fan!

Other really nice titles:

Little Cloud (charming and can be linked with easy art activities)
Papa, please get the Moon for me (stunning, very sophisticated)
The Very Busy Spider (with a thread which is tactile on each page)
The Bad Tempered Ladybird (superb - really funny!)
Brown Bear, Brown Bear - lovely for teaching colours. Great version read by Carle himself on You Tube. Search, "Brown Bear Brown Bear Eric Carle"
Do you want to be my Friend? About a little mouse - no words, all inferred.
From Head to Toe (Imitation, body parts)
and not forgetting the one and only, "The Very Busy Caterpillar".

There is also a small board book set which concentrates on numbers, colours etc.

The CD stories of some of these are invariably lovely, very soothing with fantastic music. Video of the Very Hungry Caterpillar - well worth a look. As is Eric Carle's art website on the internet.

There are more but these are the ones I think are superb and loved by children. I have found them instrumental in language and art development.

My two year old son adores this book but my five year old also enjoys it as well. The illustrations are charming and colourful. The two yr old has the fun of pulling out each sliding picture and revealing the big cat which makes him really involved. Each cat is shown with an image of the country it comes from. This makes conversation about geography and environment, how each cat is different etc. I think this is really an excellent book.

My 22 month old loves cats so really likes this book. She likes pulling the sliding pages out but is a bit rough and has pulled some out completely. These can still be slid in and out as before but just don't stop anymore so continue to come right out if pulled. They could get lost now too. She also bends some of the pages when they are slid out. She does enjoy the gimmick so maybe the weakness introduced to the otherwise sturdy book is worth it.

Bit disappointed with this one. Usually love Eric Carle but this one is nothing special. Looks like a baby book as harldy any text but babies wouldn't understand the concept of finding different cats all ove the world. And a bit tricky for a three year old as well. Quite nice pictures but hard to get excited about this book really.

Good hard wearing book perfect for little hands. My daughter likes to pull out the pages however there isn't much of a story!
