But after they meet at the Alley Cat's Meow-the hottest boogie-woogie juke.

JON GOODELL has illustrated numerous beautiful books for young readers, including The Alley Cat's Meow. In Merry Christmas, Merry Crow by Kathi Appelt there is an unlikely gift giver (a Crow) who swoops down and around town to collect abandoned 'bits and pieces' of 'this and that. He lives in Norman, Oklahoma. What is Crow doing, collecting pieces of string, a button, a strand of tinsel and berries from a tree? The Crow has a special gift for the town and it's absolutely perfect!

Kathi Appelt Kathi Appelt. Librarians often say that every book is not for every child, but The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp is (The New York Times).

There is nothing lonelier than a cat who has been loved, at least for a while, and then abandoned on the side of the road. A calico cat, about to have kittens, hears the lonely howl of a chained-up hound deep in the backwaters of the bayou. Meet Bingo and J’miah, raccoon brothers on a mission to save Sugar Man Swamp in this rollicking tale and National Book Award Finalist from Newbery Honoree Kathi Appelt. Raccoon brothers Bingo and J’miah are the newest recruits of the Official Sugar Man Swamp Scouts.

Their cat-trot was exceptional,, Magnificent! . Paired to a toe-tapping rhyme from Appelt (Poems from Home Room, . 214, et., this happily-ever-after terpsichorean triumph will leave readers of any age breathless.

Their cat-trot was exceptional,, Magnificent! ¡Caramba!" On they sweep, to wow audiences from Broadway to Vegas, on the silver screen, in Paris, Brazil, and Havana. In each setting, not only are they posed with joyful expressions and irresistible exuberance in mid-fling, but their clothes are magnficent: elegant tuxes or deceptively casual dress for him, splendid ruffles, liquescent silks, and luxurious furs for her.

Cute story in rhyme. Amusing, adorable illustrations. Love the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers analogy. Arrived in perfect condition.

A beautiful story - purrfect for children! I buy every copy I can find to give as gifts to friends and family.

The story is really a thinly disguised nod to a cliche of the 30s and 40s. The two dancing cats, Red and Ginger, could be fRED Astaire and GINGER Rogers respectively. My son of course, asked, what an 'A' train was and he interpolated an 'h' into the Catanooga Choo-choo since he knew the song, both conveyances of which feature in the story. And he loved it, because despite its coded references to cultural archaeology, it really is a children's story, like the one about Jack and Jill going up the hill, or better yet, like the tale of the owl and the pussycat sailing to sea.

Here are little boy cats in striped shirts, posed kisses between Red and Ginger, a waiter bringing a drink of milk in champagne glass and a fantasy dance tour of exotic locales. And both cats live happily ever after. Not a stain crosses the pages of childhood. And that's good enough for me.

This is one of the most delightful books I've ever read to my granddaughter - and I love it as well. The illustrations are so imaginative and colorful. The rhyming text is almost a song as you read it aloud. I rate it up there with "Mr. Maxwell's Mouse, another truly imaginative cat story.

Here is a book with rich language, written in a syncopated, jazzy style. My 3 year old granddaughter loves it, and so do I. This book is a joy to read. What other book describes someone as looking luminous, or being la di da di da? I've fallen in love, and you will, too.

This is the worst kind of book. A competent writer. A competent illustrator. Horrible, saccharin poetry. Virtuosic, deathly boring pastel illustrations. A story ill-suited for young readers (and their parents). The kind of book that would have made me never want to read another book ever again. Please, no more books like this. Ever.
Surely all of the collective talent that went into creating this book could have been employed more fruitfully. Kids need smarter books. Ones where the author and illustrator are less in love with their own abilities, amd more genuinely interested in what will appeal to, and challenge, young minds.
