Zat Cat!

Spring 2002 Picture Books
Ages: 5 - 9 yrs.
By: Chesley McLaren
ISBN: 0439273161
Hardcover Price: $16.95
This jaunty story about a Parisian cat will appeal to the same sophisticated children who love to hear about Eloise and her adventures at The Plaza Hotel in New York. The listener gets fleeting glimpses of the Jardin Luxembourg, Le Musée du Louvre and winds up with "zat cat" behind the scenes at a grand fashion show. A breezy and slight rhymed text accompanies this wisp of a story. But best of all is the author's gift for transliterating key French phrases. Listeners and readers alike will speak like the natives should they march down the Champs Elysées ("SHAUM-zay-lee-ZAY"). It's a tasty potpourri.
