Where Is Catkin?
(657 copies available)
A cat's curiosity lands him in a tight spot.
Catkin slithers through the grass, creeps by the pond, and explores a rock pile. Along the way he follows the sounds of animals and insects.
Kerik-Kerik. Catkin sees something shiny and small in the thick grass. Catkin hops--but the cricket gets away. Garrump. Garrump. Catkin sees something green and spotted. Catkin leaps--but the frog hops into the water.
When Catkin hears a rustling by the tree he climbs up to the highest branch to investigate. But it's a long, long way back down to the ground. Meeeow. Meeeow. Now who will hear Catkin and rescue him?
Author Janet Lord's simple, satisfying story of a mischievous cat features cheerful animal sounds and an entertaining find-and-seek element, all richly portrayed in Julie Paschkis's gorgeous illustrations that celebrate the patterns and shapes founds in nature.
