Editorial Reviews

Praise for What Will Fat Cat Sit On? :[set star]'A rollicking and highly promising debut.'- Publishers Weekly (starred)'Fat Cat's sheepish grin is the running punch line in this cheerful, boldly designed picture book.'- The New York Times Book Review Thick black outlines, solid blocks of color, and easily read facial expressions will work well for story times. Allusions at the end to cake and turnips recall Thomas's earlier A Birthday for Cow! , which featured these four barnyard friends being just as silly. Read both books together, and you'll have preschoolers rolling in the aisles." - The Horn Book Magazine (November/December 2008)"
