This nearly wordless book uses onomatopoeia and striking bold illustrations to tell the story of a vulnerable stray cat in search of food, shelter and love.

A cat enters a grocery store in search of food, but the proprietor shoos her away. A bus approaches offering shelter, but the large-handed, scary-faced driver shouts SCRAM! When another bus approaches, the cat runs in with a WHOOSH and meets a grandfatherly gentleman who changes the cat's circumstances forever.

Young children will empathize with strong emotional content-hunger, loneliness, rejection; then contentment and joy-revealed through the expressive rendering of the characters. Powerful visual storytelling, perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

Aram Kim was born in Cincinnati, raised in South Korea, and currently lives in New York City.  Aram is the author and illustrator of Cat on the Bus, her first picture book.
