Can they possibly succeed? The answer depends on whom you ask.

Editorial Reviews

Barrett is back with another fun story kids will love. Hal, Dora , and Geneva are three felines who lead very different lives. Hal is your typical alley cat on the prowl for his next tasty meal after being thrown out of his previous home. Dora lived in a dress shop and adored the finer things in life but had been cast out after putting off the well-heeled customers. Geneva was once owned by a movie star but finds herself on the street after her owner’s career reversal. These three kitties find one another and decide to put their talents to use and “sing” for their supper. Barrett’s pencil, watercolor, and ink cartoon art conveys the playfulness of the text. Ideal for a read-aloud, Cats Got Talent will appeal to those younger elementary school age children who have dreams of performing and becoming a superstar. A fun, enjoyable read.–Christopher Lassen, Brooklyn Public Library
