About the Book

"In the city, windows light.

How many cats will dance tonight? "

It's just a quiet evening in the city. Or is it? As the sun sets in the sky, dancing felines take to the streets and rooftops for a night on the town.

Come along one night on Easy Street as a pair of cats start to groove to the beat. Count the cats by twos (and hunt for their number hidden on the page!) in this foot-tapping, finger-snapping counting book.

Editorial Reviews

"...Klassen's retro-looking illustrations of a posse of cool cats, in pale pink tuxedos and poodle skirts, are fun to look at. Lights dimly glow in the background from elegant French casements and alley tenements alike, as though the black, white and gray cats had the free run of the city."--New York Times, August 15th 2010
