Book Description

Rat-a-tat-tat! I’ve Lost My Cat! by Denny Taylor is a picture storybook that is great fun for children learning to read. It is a lovable lost cats mystery with happily mixed-up families and friends. The paintings of the charismatic characters and the irresistible cats are bold and brilliantly painted by the acclaimed conceptual artist, Shelton Walsmith. When read aloud the story hums, and the rhythm of the highly predictable text makes it easy and joyful for children to read. At Garn Press we consider it the ultimate antidote to the developmentally inappropriate Common Core and the potentially damaging high stakes tests that are being administered to little children. Rat-a-tat-tat! I’ve Lost My Cat! is a light hearted pleasure that will make learning to read a moment to treasure in children’s young lives. We expect there will be some children who will want to keep the book forever.
