A little boy's cat is missing, and he embarks on a fantastic round-the-world quest to find his lost pet. Along the way, he meets lots of interesting people and sees many beautiful members of the cat family, including lions and tigers and panthers.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute book, could use more depth This is really a cute idea and something you don't see often - a boy looking for his cat. Usually, it's a girl going after her cat but I think this is a cute twist because there are bunches of boys out there with great cats, and ours is one of them too! :) I agree with the other reviewer that there should definitely be more words in this book and that Carle should have taken the time to indicate the types of various cats he has pictured from all over the world. The idea of having the boy look all over the world for his cat is pretty neat because if you've EVER looked for a lost cat, well, you know it feels just like you are looking everywhere for him/her. It's a cute little story, one that is read quite often in our house and I do recommend it
