The Bookstore Cat
Author(s): Cylin Busby
An irresistible and engaging picture book perfect for story time, and for cat and bookstore lovers alike!
The bookstore cat is an adorable . . .
bossy . . .
He is everything from intelligent and loyal to naughty and vocal! But most of all, the bookstore cat is a well-loved (and well-read) kitty. Follow his funny antics from A to Z through a day in his bustling, book-filled shop.
The Bookstore Cat is based on a Victorian parlor game, The Minister’s Cat, in which players try to think of adjectives to describe the cat in alphabetical order. Readers can extend the fun of the book by playing their own version of the game.
“A real treat for the legion of readers with intersecting loves of books and cats.”
“The best part of the book is its potential for teaching and learning; the less concrete descriptors open the way for vocabulary-building, and once the author has shown them how to play the game, most readers will want to come up with their own alphabets.”
“An alphabetical celebration of the venerable bookstore cat.”
